Carefully planned charitable gifts may help you achieve both personal philanthropic and estate planning priorities in ways you might not have thought possible. Including United Way of the Cape Fear Area in your estate plan may help reduce your estate, capital gains and current income taxes, and/or provide a steady source of income for you and your family.

Knowing the right option and best assets to donate depends on your unique needs, goals, family situation, charitable interests and assets. United Way of the Cape Fear Area can work with you and your professional advisor and/or attorney to ensure that your gift maximizes its potential not just for the community, but also for you and your family.
