Planned Giving

Together, we can make an impact.

Building a strong community that takes care of everyone who lives here depends on your generous support.

Creating your legacy is easier than ever

Everyone needs a legal will, but fewer than 30% of people have one because it can seem scary, complicated, or expensive. Our process through FreeWill, takes 25 minutes or less and is legally valid in all 50 states.

One of the most powerful ways to advance the common good in the Bay Area is to include United Way Bay Area in your will. Many people like to include a gift to United Way Bay Area and other causes they care about as a way to magnify their own impact. (These gifts are a huge help TODAY, as we plan an ambitious future.)
