Planned Gift

Another way to donate is through a planned gift. Women in our nation have a strong history of leaving legacies that affect future generations. With a little planning now, the difference we can all make will be profound. The Women’s Philanthropy Institute suggests the following:

Ask yourself: “What two or three things mean the most to me?”

Then ask: “What values do I want to pass on to the next generation?”

And lastly ask: “Who can help me pass those values down?”

Please consider The Women’s Fund of the Capital Region in your estate planning. Read about the first planned gift received by the Women's Fund. Mary Lou Lamb's story might be similar to yours.

For more information on how to do this, contact Jackie Mahoney, Executive Vice President in the estate planning area, the Community Foundation for the Capital Region – the endowment-building arm of The Women’s Fund – directly at (518) 446-9638.

Invest in her future — please help us improve the lives of women and girls in our community.
