Give the gift that keeps on giving
Planned Giving Tools
GIFTS OF STOCK: If you own stocks or other publicly-traded securities that are worth more than what you paid for them, it may be cost-efficient to donate shares of that stock or mutual fund, rather than mailing a check to us. United Way of Pickens County will accept a stock or mutual fund gift of any kind, and we recommend initiating that gift by December 20th, so that the transaction can take place before December 31st.

If you have specific questions, contact Mark Eisengrein at 864-850-7094, ext. 108.
FREE WILL: Through our partnership with United Way Worldwide, you can create a free will through FreeWill.com. Simply visit their website and utilize the guide that will walk you through the 20 minute process. As a reminder, you are invited to make a final gift to United Way of Pickens County through your will. This is an easy way to give from your remaining assets, and it will allow you to support those in need in our community for generations to come. Once you have completed your Free Will, be sure to print a copy, sign it, and have a couple of people witness your signature to make it official. Don't forget to place your original, signed will with your other important legal and financial documents, in a place where family members can find it one day. You may want to give a copy of your official will to anyone whose name is listed in your will. Once your Free Will is official, we recommend that you have a local attorney review the contents of your will, so that it complies with all your wishes.
