Leave a Lasting Legacy

Creating a future where all adults with disabilities have access to life-changing services

Planned giving at NW Works represents the ultimate gift dedicated to the future of the organization and adults with disabilities in the Northern Shenandoah Valley. Perhaps you’ve made a gift before, maybe you are a monthly donor, or maybe you do not have the capacity at this time to make a monetary gift. Regardless of your status as a current donor, or a volunteer, a client, a family member of a client, or a vested community member, Planned giving can be a viable way to make an incredible impact for the future of NW Works and the clients we serve.

Most planned gifts require NO immediate investment, rather they involve the planning for a significant gift(s) in the future. Examples of planned gifts include making NW Works a beneficiary of your life insurance policy, or listing NW Works in your will or bequest. It can be as simple as rolling over additional funds from your IRA or gifting an appreciated stock. 

Planned gifts to NW Works represent a future that is sustained by the thoughtfulness and generosity of supporters in the present, ensuring our services and programs are available to adults with disabilities for generations to come. 

If you are considering a planned gift to NW Works, we ask that the gift be made out to the NWW Foundation (EIN 81-4872523), a 509(a)(3) foundation that exists solely to support our important work. If you would like to notify us of a planned gift, have any questions about the process, or are not sure where to start, please reach out to our Director of Development, Carly Stoliker, at cstoliker@nwworks.com or call 540-313-9444.

To help shed even more light on planned giving, our esteemed friends at the law office of Joshua E. Hummer, Esq., PLC, have written the articles below to provide more information about how to maximize your gift.
