The YWCA Legacy Society

You do not need to be wealthy to leave a legacy. Make your core values known by joining the YWCA Santa Monica / Westside and making a planned gift to the YWCA. Members of the YWCA's Legacy Society are generous and forward-thinking donors who will support our long-term success and be long remembered. In addition to supporting our work through your generous cash donations, here are other ways you can contribute to the sustainability of the YWCA's efforts to empower women and girls by creating opportunities for growth, progress and success. In the long term. Many of these options are a win-win for the donor and the organization. We encourage you to consult with your financial advisor to discuss the tax implications of these options.



One of the easiest ways to help involves simply naming YWCA Santa Monica / Westside as a beneficiary in your will and living trust. A bequest may be for a particular dollar amount or percentage of your estate. Estate tax savings may be significant.

Life Insurance Policy and Retirement Assets

Often overlooked by donors, naming the YWCA as a partial beneficiary of these assets can provide support for the organization.


Life Income Gifts

Life income gifts allow you to leave a gift in the care of the YWCA Santa Monica / Westside, while earning income for yourself during your lifetime. The two most popular life income gifts are charitable remainder trusts and charitable gift annuities.

Complex Gifts

If you are a business owner, own real property or have any other type of complex asset, giving options exist that can both help the YWCA and benefit your family financially.

  • Recognition on the website
  • Tributes in the YWCA Annual Report
  • Tickets to the YWCA's annual Focus Awards Gala
  • Invitations to the YWCA's Annual Legacy Society luncheon
