A Planned Legacy


With planned giving, you have the opportunity to plan your estate and your charitable giving in a way that is beneficial to you and your family — and that leaves a legacy to a cause important to you.

There are several ways you can make a planned gift to CWS, while enjoying the tax and income benefits. From bequests, to stocks, bonds and retirement assets, we are here to help you make the best decision for you and your loved ones.
