PLANNED GIVING:

Many people, at one time or another, do not have the available funds to give to the charity of their choice; or, prefer giving in another manner. The following are a few other options available to you when wanting to donate to the Green Mountain United Way:

  • Including that charity in a last will and testament
  • Giving shares of stock, which might avoid capital gains taxes
  • Naming the charity as the beneficiary on a life insurance policy
  • Arranging for a Charitable Gift Annuity
  • Arranging for a Charitable Remainder Trust
  • Arranging for a Charitable Lead Trust

These are only a few of the many options available to donors. The Green Mountain United Way recommends that donors first consult with a lawyer, tax accountant or estate planner to be sure the best method of giving is chosen.

To discuss these and other possible ways of giving, please call our Barre, VT office at 802-613-3989 and every attempt to meet your needs will be made.
