Begin Your Legacy With Us
Planned giving includes donation options such as charitable bequests and IRA required distributions. With gift planning, you can provide long-lasting support for Tewa Women United while enjoying financial benefits for yourself. Your gift will support TWU’s holistic work in environmental and reproductive justice throughout the Tewa homelands.
You may be looking for a way to make a significant gift to help sustain and further our work in the future. A bequest is a gift made through your will or trust. It is one of the most popular and flexible ways that you can support Tewa Women United.
To help you get started on your plans and legacy, you can use FreeWill, an online tool that guides you through the process of creating a legally valid will or trust. We’ve partnered with Free Will to support you in this process, and it’s easy to use, accessible online and can be completed in 20 minutes. You can use this resource on its own, or use it to document your wishes before finalizing your plans with an attorney.
Have you already included a gift in your will or trust? Please fill out this form to let us know! We would love to thank you for your generosity.
What are the benefits of making a bequest?
- You leave a lasting legacy to be remembered
- You lessen the burden of taxes on your family
- You may receive estate tax savings
Do you have an IRA, 401(k), life-insurance policy, or any other assets not included in your will? If so, these are called non-probate assets and you must plan your beneficiaries for them separately. Use this online tool to make your plans and designate us as a beneficiary of one or more of these assets.
Give From Your IRA
If you are 70.5 or older and have a traditional IRA, you can use this secure online tool to make a donation from your IRA account. IRA gifts are generally not recognized as taxable income and if you must take a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) this year, giving from your IRA is a compassionate way to fulfill it. Using this online tool, you can learn more and fill out the forms from your IRA custodian in just a few minutes, or print out the forms to fill them out offline.
