If your securities are held at a brokerage firm:
Contact your broker in writing and request a transfer of securities to the United Way account. United Way has accounts at most of the brokerage houses in our area.

Notify Marcy Clark at United Way of this transfer by calling (205) 458-2012. Notify your company's campaign coordinator so your gift can be included in your company's campaign results.

If you hold the securities:
Assign your stock certificate to United Way of Central Alabama and be sure your signature is guaranteed. Stock certificate should be hand-delivered or sent by certified mail to:
United Way of Central Alabama, Inc.
Attn: Marcy Clark
3600 8th Avenue South
P.O. Box 320189
Birmingham, AL 35232-0189


Send a letter stating that this is a gift to United Way separate from the certificate. Notify your company's campaign coordinator so your gift can be included in your company's campaign results.

Note: You should consult your professional, financial, or legal advisor for tax advice.


PLANNED GIVING

The United Way Covenant Legacy Society
United Way of Central Alabama, Inc. offers a number of gift options that will enable you to make a contribution according to your specific needs, interests, and asset management. Members of the Covenant Legacy Society are those who have made a planned gift to United Way through their will, estate plan, or by some other means to the endowment fund.

A gift to United Way of Central Alabama, Inc. from your estate can help children in need of medical care, families who have lost their homes to natural disasters, or a person with a disability who wants to learn marketable skills. You can perpetuate your gift to United Way so future generations can benefit from your generosity. Gifts to our Endowment Fund are critical to the mission of United Way. Consider your gift a sound investment that can benefit you and your family today, and serve those in need in our community in the future. Contact your professional, financial or legal advisor for help. Your advisor can make sure you are getting the maximum tax and legal advantages allowed for your gift.

Some of the ways to make a lasting legacy include:
  • Outright gifts of cash
  • Bequest through a will
  • Securities, such as stocks and bonds
  • Various income-generating trusts
  • Real estate, leases, or deeds
  • IRA or retirement funds
  • Life insurance
  • Gift annuity
United Way also welcomes contributions made in memory of a family member, friend, or employee, and honorariums given in recognition of holidays, retirements, or special occasions.

We encourage you to discuss your gift with our Office of Planned Giving by calling DJ Hampton II at (205) 458-2025 or by emailing at djhampton@uwca.org.
