With a planned gift to Women’s Economic Ventures you can create a powerful legacy, advancing WEV’s work while furthering your financial goals. Through our Legacy Society we will honor and thank supporters who include WEV in their wills, trusts, and other planned giving. Please notify us when you arrange a bequest or other planned gift to WEV, or if you have already done so, so that we can induct you as a member to honor your vision and dedication to women in micro business.
Making a bequest through a will enables you to designate a contribution while retaining full control of your assets throughout your life. You can bequeath a specific amount of money, a percentage of your estate, or specific property. Your charitable gift also may reduce taxes due on your estate.
Here is some suggested language for a bequest to WEV:
“To Women’s Economic Ventures a not-for-profit corporation with its principal offices located in Santa Barbara, California for the general use and purposes of the charitable organization.”
We encourage you to talk with your legal and tax advisors about the type of bequest that might work best for you. If you’re considering a legacy gift, please consult with us as well, so that we can make sure your wishes are honored.
For more information or support in completing your bequest please contact Kate MacNaughton, Development Manager at (805) 908-0091.
