Legacy Giving

Help build a future where every woman and girl has the opportunity to live freely, pursue her dreams, and reach her full potential. With your generosity, a legacy gift has the power to change the lives of women and girls around the world for generations to come. Legacy giving or planned giving does not require a large income or vast estate, but is a thoughtful intention to support Together Women Rise after your lifetime. Legacy giving can also provide significant tax benefits. Here are some ways to leave a legacy gift to support Together Women Rise.


A Gift in Your Will or Trust

The most common and simplest form of planned giving, a bequest is a gift made through a donor’s will or trust.

  • You retain control of your assets during your lifetime. These gifts cost nothing at this time.
  • You choose the amount. There is no minimum contribution required.
  • You can provide for loved ones while also supporting Together Women Rise. You can put your family first by stating, “If my partner survives me, then I leave my entire estate to my partner. If my partner does not survive me, then I leave my estate as follows…”
  • You can stay flexible by using percentages. For example, “I give to Together Women Rise 50% of my residuary estate to be used for general purposes.”
  • You may change your plans at any time.
  • You can remain anonymous.
  • You can leave a gift in honor or memory of someone special.

To make your bequest to Together Women Rise, please use the following language in your will:
