Leaving a Legacy

United Way of Western CT helps ALICE prosper

Often when we think of the word legacy, we think of things – material possessions. But your legacy isn’t always about things. Making a will gives you peace of mind today and leaves a legacy that supports the people and causes most important to you tomorrow. United Way has partnered with FreeWill  to give you a free, intuitive way to write your will today.

Making or updating your will and including a gift to United Way of Western Connecticut is also easier than you might imagine with FreeWill. Including a gift to United Way is a powerful way to continue the fight for the people in our communities who work hard but still struggle to get by—a population we call ALICE® (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed).

As donors, you have fundamentally impacted the lives of ALICE families in our region. You have provided their children with better care, given their children educational and enrichment opportunities they couldn’t otherwise afford, made healthy food more affordable, and helped them become more financially stable.

United Way’s mission is simple: We help ALICE families and individuals prosper. With your help, we can improve the lives of hard-working, struggling households for generations to come.

Great communities don’t just happen. They are created by individuals with vision and willingness to invest in the future. We challenge you to think about how you will continue to cultivate and invest in creating lasting change this year.
