Planned Giving Supports A Personal Legacy

YWCA Central Carolinas named its planned giving society in honor of Sarah Belk Gambrell, longtime supporter and board member emeritus. Sarah’s Legacy Society is our way of permanently acknowledging individuals and families who include YWCA in their estate plans.

There are many options available to those who wish to include YWCA in their long-term estate plans. The simplest is a bequest in your will or designating YWCA as a beneficiary of your retirement plan, life insurance policy, bank account and/or stocks and securities. It’s easy and straight-forward, usually requiring just a form to be filled out. All of these options are a meaningful way to support the YWCA without affecting your cash-flow during your lifetime.

To discuss your planned gift or for additional information, please contact our Director of Philanthropy, Sarah Lanners Avinger at 980.585.0498 or All requests for information will remain confidential. If you have already included the YWCA Central Carolinas in your estate plans, please let us know so we can acknowledge your generosity and include your name in Sarah’s Legacy Society. Our official name is Young Women’s Christian Association of the Central Carolinas, Inc. and our tax ID is 56-0532139.
