How You Can Help

There are many ways in which you can support the work of YWCA Clark County. These include making a monetary donation, sponsoring one of our events, volunteering for us, supporting our advocacy efforts, or making a donation of one or more of the items off our wish list. Whichever way you choose to give, your gift will have a lasting impact on the lives of the people we serve.

Workplace Giving & Matching

Does your company support charitable donations through payroll deductions? Payroll deductions are an easy way to support YWCA without putting noticeable pressure on your budget. It also decreases the administrative coordination included on both your end—and ours. Many employers will also match their employee’s contributions, which will double the impact of your donation. Speak to your human resources department or community relations department to see what programs your company has in place. Please note that payroll deductions are coordinated by employers, with your contribution reflected in your paystubs. YWCA cannot provide tax receipts for payroll deductions.

Planned Giving & Bequests

Create a legacy to be proud of through a planned gift to YWCA Clark County. Learn how you can become a member of the Mary Powell Society, which recognizes special donors who invest in YWCA Clark County’s future through estate planning or a deferred gift. Give through your will, trust, or income plan and ensure your values and beliefs create a living legacy. Planned giving options can be tailored to meet both your interests and needs, and there are a range of effective, tax-efficient methods to consider. These include:

  • Gifts you can make today (e.g. charitable lead trusts, endowments)
  • Gifts that will pay you income (e.g. charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts)
  • Gifts that will benefit the YWCA after your death (e.g. bequests)

A bequest will qualify your estate for a charitable deduction equal to the entire amount that you bequeath to YWCA Clark County. Download our sample bequest letter or contact us to discuss including the YWCA Clark County in your will or estate plan.

Please consult your professional financial or tax adviser to learn more about these giving strategies to determine which one is right for you. If you would like us to refer a Planned Giving Advisor, please contact us at 360-906-9123.
