Build your legacy plan!

UNA-NCA is a non-profit organization supported by members who believe in the importance of its mission. Become a member of the UNA-NCA Legacy Circle by remembering UNA-NCA in your will.

Members can also join the Legacy Circle with monthly contributions of $25 or more. Scheduled contributions can be set-up through monthly checks made payable to UNA-NCA (2000 P Street, NW, Suite 540, Washington DC 20036) or through our secure portal using credit card. To set up scheduled monthly contributions, please contact us at 202-223-6092 so that we can assist you with the process.

Such planned gift options are attractive because they give the donor financial flexibility. Legacy gifts can be revocable, through a charitable bequest in a will, so they can be revoked at any time. Or, they can be irrevocable and thus provide immediate tax relief to the donor. Furthermore, members of UNA-NCA's Legacy Circle are recognized in the UNA-NCA Annual Report.

The multiple giving options described below allow both you and UNA-NCA to benefit and thus continue and strengthen our programs in the National Capital Area.
