We know that in light of adversity, it can feel difficult or uncomfortable to take action. That is why we are providing three resources that will maximize your savings and support our work during the COVID-19 crisis, so that you can choose what makes the most sense for you.

  1. Give a gift for later (free today!): You can support United Way of Greater Atlanta forever without paying anything today using our free will-writing tool. A legacy can ensure we can improve lives in our community for generations to come. Write your will and include United Way of Greater Atlanta today.
  2. Give from your IRA: If you’re 70.5 or older and have a traditional IRA, you’re eligible to make a tax-free gift known as a QCD, regardless of if you itemize deductions. FreeWill’s new tool makes the process easier than ever to complete. Make a QCD today.
  3. Give a gift of stock: Transferring appreciated stocks allows you to avoid paying capital gains tax, and deduct the full amount of your stock from your tax return. Transferring stock is a powerful gift to provide immediate funds to United Way of Greater Atlanta. Transfer stock now.

Creating a legacy gift, making a QCD, or transferring stock aren’t just ways to save on your taxes — they’re high-impact ways to demonstrate your commitment to the common good. Today, tomorrow and forever.
