Your gift to the Cape and Islands United Way is the most powerful gift you can make in our region. Why? Because with your one donation, you are investing in programs that provide care for the elderly, after school programs for children, affordable housing, food and utilities for people struggling to make ends meet – and so much more. Together, we change lives and build stronger communities.

100% of donations raised here stay at work in our community!

When you include the Cape and Islands United Way in your estate planning, you are leaving a legacy of hope and making a lasting change in the lives of future generations. All legacy gifts support the Cape and Islands United Way endowment – ensuring that your gift keeps giving to your community in perpetuity.

A bequest is the simplest way to make a lasting gift – and amendments can easily be added to your existing will without the need to re-do the entire document. To make a gift to the Cape and Islands United Way through your will, please use the following language: “I give the sum of $_________ dollars to the Cape and Islands United Way for its general purposes without restriction.” (Alternately, you may wish to stipulate a percentage of your estate.)

We are happy to work with you, your family, and your advisers on a confidential basis to ensure a future gift that meets your needs.
