Your Legacy: Greater Equity and Expanded Opportunities for Future Generations of Women

There will always be a need for a strong vocal advocate for women’s economic security. Your legacy gift continues the work of addressing the challenges of the day, whatever they may be, far into the future.

Your legacy gift will help ensure that all women will have meaningful opportunities to achieve their aspirations for themselves and their families. You can make your planned gift through wills, bequests, retirement accounts or life insurance policies. Many of these gifts provide tax benefits to the donor. It’s just a matter of planning what to give, how to give and when to give. Consult your legal adviser to determine the best way to make a planned gift and to assess its tax or other legal consequences.

When you make a planned gift, you’ll be welcomed as a member of our legacy society, Generations Circle.

The information on these pages illustrates several ways of making a planned gift, and our staff can be of even more help. Just contact us.


Vicki Curtis

Vicki Curtis first became involved with Women Employed in the 1970s when a coworker handed her a leaflet. Over the years, her commitment to WE has been unwavering. She has served on the board, filled tables at The Working Lunch, and, most recently, provided for WE in her will.

“I made a legacy gift because I have been impressed with WE through the years. Because of our efforts in the 1970s and 1980s, women now have many more choices for careers. The current focus is on education, fair scheduling and paid sick leave — where we just won a major victory. I hope my gift helps to win equal pay, end discrimination and create an equal playing field for women.”
