Leave a legacy

The Tomorrow Fund™, United Way’s endowment, is your chance to future-proof our region, building a community where poverty has no power and everyone has a fair chance at a good life. That means you’ll personally ensure communities are vibrant today—and ready to tackle the emerging social issues of tomorrow. 

Ways to give

You can give the gift of a lifetime today—or make a promise for tomorrow. Here’s how:

  • A personally-named fund: Creating a personal or family fund within the endowment will help you start building your legacy now, while ensuring vital programs and services in the community are funded for years to come. 
  • Gifts by charitable bequest: By naming United Way as a will beneficiary, you’ll receive a tax receipt for the value of your gift, reducing taxes payable on final income tax returns. Gift options include:
    • A percentage of your estate
    • A sum of money
    • In-kind gifts such as property or a personal art collection
    • Stocks and securities
    • A life insurance policy
    • Registered retirement savings
    • Annuity gifts 

What we can offer you

These exclusive benefits are available today to help connect you to the work you are making possible—now and for years to come. 

  • Invitations to high-profile events where you can connect with other leading donors.
  • Personalized stewardship & reporting including an annual report, newsletter subscription and the option to review the portfolio’s performance with a philanthropic adviser.
  • Recognition in perpetuity as a Tomorrow Fund™ donor on United Way’s website and in a variety of prestigious honour rolls.
