Planned Donations

Planned Giving

Planned gifts offer supporters many benefits, from reducing or eliminating certain taxes to providing life-long funds to the Barbados UWC movement. There are several ways to make a planned donation:

  • Sign up forms. The easiest way to create a planned donation scheme is to request a sign up form where you will be given the option of how much you would like to donate and how often. 


  • Bequests. A simple way to make a planned gift is to name UWC Barbados as a beneficiary in your will. You can make a bequest of a dollar amount, a piece of property, a percentage of your estate, or a “residual” (what is left after making specific provisions for loved ones). 


  • Gifts from retirement plans. Retirement funds are often taxable—whether to you or your heirs—when withdrawn. If you make a gift directly from your retirement fund, you can often avoid these taxes by taking an offsetting deduction for your charitable gift.
