Legacy Fund: Building Bridges into the Future

Why does the Legacy Fund matter?

Your United Way gifts go to work close to home. A bequest through your will, revocable living trust, or other legal vehicles will help countless people through community-oriented programs and services. Just as an umbrella provides protection during a storm, United Way provides security and services for children, families, and individuals in Etowah County.
Members of the Legacy Fund have continued their support of United Way beyond their lifetime. By designating United Way as a beneficiary under their will, trust, life insurance policy, or retirement account, they help guarantee that United Way can continue to do the work in the future that it has so compassionately and effectively done in the past.

Why is investing in the Legacy Fund is one of the smartest moves you'll ever make?

Permanence: Since 1938, United Way of Etowah County has been helping local people. Over the years, needs change. Agencies come and go. But you'll always know United Way will be here for people in need.
Efficiency: United Way volunteers will make sure the principal of your gift is carefully preserved and the income effectively and efficiently invested in addressing the needs of our community.
Expertise: United Way keeps current on changing needs and directs your gift to the most critical needs. That means your gift will be as timely years from now as it is today.
