Legacy Society

Leave a Legacy for Generations to Come

Together, We Can

Building a strong community that takes care of everyone who lives here depends on your generous support.


United Way’s Legacy Society recognizes forward-thinking donors who make the extraordinary decision to invest in the future of their community by including United Way of Greater New Haven in their Will or Estate plans.

By designating a future gift, of any amount, through a life insurance or retirement plan beneficiary designation or through a charitable provision in your Will or Trust, you become a tangible partner to create change today, tomorrow and well into the future.

Legacy Society members extend their support and commitment to changing the lives of children and families for generations to come. If you have already included United Way in your estate plans, please let us know so we can welcome you into the Legacy Society and celebrate you during your lifetime.
