Legacy Circle

“Members and non-members who strongly believe in the mission of AAUW and in the ways that we are helping women throughout the world, especially in education, please consider exploring ways to leave a legacy gift.” Anne Loy

Plan Wisely – for Today’s Needs and for Tomorrow 

How do you take care of the people and things that matter most to you – now and for the future? 

Through careful planning, you can benefit your loved ones and your charitable interests while investing in equity for women and girls. Some reasons to create a plan include: 

  • Taking care of loved ones 
  • Memorializing someone you care about 
  • Advancing equity for women and girls through AAUW 
  • Increasing current income for you or others 
  • Passing more on to heirs with reduced taxes 
  • Reducing income tax 
  • Avoiding capital gains tax 

As you consider what is important to you and how to reflect that in your legacy, we invite you to reach out to AAUW. Our knowledgeable gift planning staff is available to assist with any questions you may have. You may also request a brochure by calling or emailing AAUW’s National Office.
