Leave a legacy by making a lasting investment

For 100 years, United Way of the Columbia-Willamette (UWCW) has been working to meet the needs of vulnerable families in our region. No matter the crisis, we have always remained steadfast in our commitment to LIVE UNITED and take care of our community.

Through our Planned Giving Program, a legacy gift enables donors to shape the future of our community for generations to come with a gift to United Way of the Columbia Willamette’s endowment. Your gift to United Way goes beyond individual causes or organizations. It leaves a legacy, and contributes to long term progress and solutions. 
Your gift can make a difference for families in need, and by planning ahead with the many options available to you, you can ensure that your dollars to UWCW are going to a cause that is committed to helping communities and families for generations to come.

“As a Foundation, we strive to ensure that our grants are providing the maximum benefit to agencies we support…United Way is uniquely positioned to feel the pulse of the economic and social stress in the community…Raising money is important. But how that money is distributed is equally important. That is what makes United Way so valuable to our community.”
