Planned Giving/Bequest

Members and friends may support The WAH center in a number of ways. The most common forms of giving are outright gifts of cash and securities, but there are other types of assets that may be donated as well and planned giving options that have favorable financial and tax benefits.

Today planned gifts are more important than ever to the WAH Center’s stability and future success. The term “planned giving” refers to any major gift that involves financial or estate planning. Such gifts can provide important benefits both to you and to the WAH Center. The different types of planned gifts include bequests, life income plans (charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts), charitable lead trusts, gifts of life insurance policies, and gifts of tangible personal property. The Williamsburg Circle is the recognition society for individuals who have chosen to make planned gifts to The WAH Center.


We would be pleased to work with you and your advisors to structure a gift that best fulfills your charitable goals. Before making a gift to The WAH Center, you should consult with your financial, tax, and legal advisors for a thorough analysis of your individual situation and the tax consequences and to decide which of these ways of giving might work best for you.
