Ways to Give

Gifts for the Present:

Outright transfer of cash or property to the YWCA Endowment
When designated to the YWCA Northcentral PA
, gifts of cash, securities or real estate immediately go to work improving the lives of women and families in our community and grow this reliable source of funding. You will be ensuring that vital services remain available to women and families for as long as the need exists.

Gifts for the Future:

Make a gift through your will
A bequest is an easy way to provide for the YWCA’s future. Through your will or revocable living trust, you can make a gift of a specific dollar amount, a particular asset, or a portion of what remains after other distributions have been made. We can provide sample bequest language that can be used to support the YWCA’s mission through your estate. If you have already included the YWCA in your estate plans, please let us know.

Life Insurance
You can make a meaningful gift to the YWCA through a life insurance policy. Options include designating the YWCA as the recipient of the death benefit or transferring ownership of an existing policy to the YWCA.

IRA or Other Retirement Plan
Naming the YWCA as a beneficiary of an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) or other type of retirement plan is a simple way to include the organization in your estate plans. All charitable distributions are tax-free and will provide ongoing support for the women and families of Lycoming County. 

Gifts that Give Back:

Charitable Gift Annuity
Combine charitable giving with fixed, lifetime payments to you—or any one or two persons that you designate. Payment rates are very attractive, plus there’s a bonus at tax time. You receive an income tax charitable deduction in the year of your gift and, for a period of many years, a portion of the payments will be favorably taxed.

Charitable Remainder Trust
With this arrangement, which features various tax benefits, you transfer assets to a trustee of your choice. The trustee manages the assets and pays fixed or variable income to you and/or others for life or a term of up to 20 years. When the trust terminates, the remaining principle is used to benefit the YWCA.
