Legacy Gifts

Endowment gifts last forever. 

The United Way of Paducah-McCracken County offers an endowment that allows you to maximize the long-term, local impact of your gift. Building the endowment is the best way to guarantee long-term resources are available to ensure we serve as a community leader and member agencies accomplish their mission of improving lives in our community.

When you make an endowment gift, you create a steady stream of annual income to forever support our United Way’s critical work. Your endowment gift is invested separately from the annual campaign funds and will be maintained in perpetuity.

As you consider your year-end gifts – did you know?

The CARES Act raised the charitable donation deduction to 100% of your AGI, for qualifying public charity donations, up from 60% limit in previous years.  But you must donate before 12/31/2021 when the 100% limit will expire.  Gifts of cash or securities can be given for your tax or estate planning needs to help create your legacy – ask us for more information and donation instructions.
