Most of us give generously each year, but few realize the impact we can have by making a gift in our will or estate plan, for both the organization we love and the people they support through their work. When you give a planned gift to Jubilee Women’s Center, not only do you transfer your core values of respect and dignity for women to the next generation, you give a woman the gift of a safe, stable and fulfilling future.
Anyone can build a legacy
There are many ways you can give, and a gift of any size or type will make a difference in women’s lives.
