Planned Giving

Remembering Kentucky Waterways Alliance in your estate plan can be a way of ensuring your continued support of our hard work while minimizing the impact on your finances during your lifetime.  If you already have a will, you can add a bequest by adding a simple codicil without planning an entirely new will.  A charitable bequest is deductible for federal estate and Kentucky inheritance tax purposes, and can be worded as a specific dollar amount, specific property, or a percentage of your estate.

Our executive director emeritus, Judy Petersen, puts it best: “Kentucky Waterways Alliance and everything the organization stands for – clean water, engaged local groups, and informed citizens, is so important to me.  Why wouldn’t I want to keep on supporting KWA even if I am no longer physically here to do so?  So, I wrote the organization into my will.  It was easy to do.”

For more information about planned giving, please contact our Executive Director, Ward Wilson, at ward@kwalliance.org

If you’ve already included Kentucky Waterways Alliance in your estate planning, please let us know so that we can include you in our Legacy Society!
