Include YWCA of High Point in your will. Your bequest will help ensure YWCA’s mission continues to be a driving force in improving the lives of women and children.
In 1955, Alice Caldwell of High Point left YWCA a bequest of $75,000. The money purchased the land where the current YWCA is located on Westwood Avenue and jumpstarted the capital campaign for the building. Her generous gift is a hallmark of the community spirit that has bolstered YWCA’s work for many years.
A charitable bequest is an excellent way to create a lasting memory and ensure the YWCA can continue its important work. Please remember YWCA in your will or living trust.
There are many ways you can leave a legacy to sustain the mission of YWCA, while at the same time providing yourself and your family with significant tax benefits.
