The Joy of Blended Giving

Invest in United Way today. Leave a Legacy tomorrow.
January 8, 2021

Each of us is unique. We all have led different lives and experienced different situations. Why then should any of us settle on the idea our charitable giving should be the same?

Just as your selection in coffee is unique to you, so should be your philanthropy. Giving to United Way of Greater Cincinnati Foundation can be as special and unique as you. With a Blended Gift, you can watch your donations at work and receive current and future benefits.

So many times in life, we think we must choose between two alternatives, such as two different cups of coffee. When making a gift to support UWGC Foundation, many people feel as if they must choose between making a sizable gift today, to receive any up-front tax benefits and see firsthand results of their gift, or holding off until much later, when they know they won’t need that particular asset or money during life, to maintain flexibility in the event of unanticipated needs.

Similar to finding your perfect coffee blend, you blend your personal philanthropy so it is right for you.

You start by making a current gift of cash, securities or real estate. Then you find the planned gift method, maybe a bequest, charitable trust or gift annuity, that works best for your situation.
