Wills and Planned Gifts

The Carrie Chapman Catt Legacy Society

Gift planning can provide significant financial benefits to you, your family and your heirs—such as federal income/estate tax deductions and tax savings; lifetime income for you and/or other beneficiaries; relief from tax liability on appreciated assets; additional security during retirement years; and more.

When you include the League of Women Voters Education Fund in your estate plans, please let us know. We will honor you as a member of the Carrie Chapman Catt Legacy Society, named in memory of the League’s founder. Catt Legacy Society members receive special benefits, including recognition in our Annual Report, invitations to League events, and special updates on the League’s activities, among others. This is our way of thanking you, and, we hope, to inspire others to follow your leadership example.
