Leave a lasting legacy, remember the United Way of St. Francois County in your will or estate plan.

Planned giving is one way you and your family can help support the St. Francois County community through the United Way. It creates a lasting legacy that can help people for years to come. Planned giving simply means planning to make a future contribution – for example a deferred gift such as a bequest in a will.

Gifts can take many forms, from specific cash bequests to gifts in kind (real estate, securities and other tangible property) or life insurance policies.

Whether you are writing a new will or updating an old one, it is easy to include the United Way of St. Francois County and leave a legacy for your community. Once you are satisfied that your loved ones are taken care of, you could consider making a charitable bequest to strengthen and sustain the community you have helped to build.
