We’re investing in Rhode Island’s future with planned giving. The Anchor Society recognizes our most loyal donors who include United Way of Rhode Island in their estate plans. We’re here to make sure you receive the personalized attention you need as you create your legacy.

Endow Your Gift

It generally takes a commitment of 20 times your annual contribution to endow an annual gift.

Bequests Through a Will or Trust

The most popular and simplest way to make a planned gift. Through your will or trust, you can provide a specific dollar amount or percentage, a residual amount, real estate, or property to UWRI.

IRA Rollover and Pension Fund Gifts

Donating to a nonprofit avoids double taxation under income and estate tax provisions. UWRI can be named as a partial or contingent beneficiary of your retirement or pension plan.

Gifts of Life Insurance

Obtain tax benefits while making a substantial gift. UWRI can be named as the sole, partial, or contingent beneficiary of a new or existing policy.

Charitable Remainder Trust

This is a simple, flexible way to provide yourself with a lifetime income while giving the remainder to a charity.

Charitable Lead Trust

Provide an annual income to UWRI for a fixed period of years, offer an annual charitable deduction, and at the end of the time period leave significant, untaxed income for your designated beneficiary.

Charitable Gift Annuity

Cash or appreciated stock are the most common ways to fund a gift annuity. You can obtain an immediate charitable income tax deduction and bypass a portion of the capital gains tax when transferring securities to UWRI.
