Leave a Legacy

Share this on:

Your legacy ensures that the issues and community you care most deeply about will enjoy continued support after you’re gone.


With a planned gift you can arrange your legacy for our community and start enjoying your plan now without writing another check. Consider including UWCNM in your estate plan or as a beneficiary. Your legacy could fund your own 'named' endowment that provides hope for the future with annual distributions that keep giving forever. Please let us know how we can assist you in determining a strategy to reach your long-term philanthropic goals. We look forward to meeting with you and coordinating with your tax, legal and financial advisors.

Legacy by the Numbers

  • Our Legacy Giving Donors have provided more than $34 million in irrevocable and revocable gifts.
  • 77% of that total is committed to benefit the Community Fund.
  • $25 million are endowment gifts, leaving legacies that keep giving forever.
  • Endowments of $10,000 or more provide annual distributions in the donor’s name in perpetuity.
