Legacy Society

When you include a legacy gift as part of your overall estate and financial plans to support Trident United Way, you are improving lives and creating lasting change in your community. Planning a gift can be easy, and your generosity will leave a legacy of support for programs and initiatives that will advance the common good for years to come.

The Legacy Society recognizes all those supporting Trident United Way’s future with a planned gift commitment. This provides us with the opportunity to understand your intentions and thank you for your commitment. Your membership in the Legacy Society will also help us encourage others to make similar commitments.
