Planned Giving

LIVE UNITED and leave a lasting legacy in our communities

Making a planned gift is one of the best ways to support United Way of Northeastern Minnesota forever.  Planned gifts to our Forever Fund endowment allow donors to make a significant impact on those in need over an extended period of time while helping to achieve financial objectives and taking advantage of benefits, which may:

  • Reduce your taxes
  • Increase your income
  • Conserve your family’s wealth
  • Fulfill your charitable goals
  • Be designed to reflect your special interests

In addition, a gift to United Way of Northeastern Minnesota’s Forever Fund will allow you to establish a lasting legacy in your community.  Your gift will help United Way of Northeastern Minnesota continue its efforts to:

  • Nurture children and youth
  • Promote financial stability and independence
  • Build strong families, neighborhoods and communities
  • Promote healthy minds and behaviors
  • Meet basic and emergency needs

United Way of Northeastern Minnesota welcomes donations made through planned giving and estate planning vehicles, which will benefit both you and our local Iron Range communities.  These giving vehicles include:

  • Bequests (through wills or living trusts)
  • Securities
  • Cash Gifts
  • Life Insurance
  • Real Estate
  • Retirement Assets (such as pension plans or individual retirement accounts “IRAs”)
  • Gift Annuities
  • Pooled Income Funds
  • Charitable Trusts

The Legacy Society

Donors who make a planned gift of any kind will be recognized as members of The Legacy Society.  If you are interested in any of our planned giving options, we will be pleased to work with you and your advisors to develop a planned gift that best suits your particular interests and needs.  For more information or to discuss your plans in confidence, please contact the United Way office at 218-254-3329 or shelley@unitedwaynemn.org.  

Through your gift, you will change lives for the better and make a positive difference in our communities. Your legacy gift will ensure that your impact on our region will continue. In addition, your example will inspire others to do likewise.  Click HERE to download our Planned Giving Brochure.
