Life events experienced by loved ones can have a significant impact, and often result in connecting individuals or family members to a cause or charity that has become important, and valuable not only to themselves, but to the world around them. We ask you to consider Newton Wellesley Weston Committee for Community Living, Inc.'s, Planned Giving program.

Planned Giving with NWW creates an opportunity to convey one's values through a legacy gift, to an organization deeply committed to the happiness, well being and dignity of all members of our community, especially those most vulnerable.

Making a gift through planned giving may also offer you significant benefits, such as savings on your income, capital gains, and estate and gift taxes.

Other benefits include retaining control of your assets during your lifetime, freedom to modify your gift if your circumstances change, and peace of mind knowing that you have lessened tax burdens for your heirs.

You get to choose how NWW makes use of your gift:

Unrestricted Gifts may be used to support any of NWW's ongoing operating needs. Unrestricted gifts are used at NWW's discretion. They can be particularly useful to organizations because they can be put to use wherever they are most needed.

Restricted Gifts are earmarked for a specific project, or for the NWW's endowment fund.

Specific Projects: NWW always has a list of projects in need of funding. We will be happy to provide you with a copy of this list.
