Gift Options

Children reading


There are numerous ways that you can make a difference.  Many of these gift options can be used to make a one-time or reoccurring gift to support your community now. Others can be used to create your legacy by endowing your gift for the future needs of our community.  

Make a Contribution

A one-time or recurring gift to our Community Impact Fund is one of the easiest, most powerful ways to make a charitable investment in your community.

IRA Rollover

Qualified Charitable Distributions

Are you 70 ½ or older with a traditional IRA? If so, you may be eligible to make a tax-free gift from your IRA called a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)!

Donate Stock

If you have appreciated stocks, transferring them directly to United Way of Martin County is a powerful way to make a greater impact on our community.

Include United Way in your Will

Leave United Way in Your Will

We’ve partnered with FreeWill to give all of our supporters the opportunity to leave their legacy and write their legally valid wills online for free.

Donate Cryptocurrency


We’re now accepting cryptocurrency donations. A donation of appreciated crypto can be up to 20% more valuable than selling and donating the cash, allowing you to make a bigger impact and save on your taxes.

Leave a Legacy


Leave your legacy through an outright or deferred gift to our endowment fund to meet the current and future unmet needs of Martin County.

Donor Advised Fund

Donor Advised Fund

A donor advised fund, which is like a charitable savings account, gives you the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted to United Way and other qualified charities. 

Estate Planning


Including United Way of Martin County in your estate planning is a great way to leave a lasting legacy and ensure that impactful services continue to be provided for our community members in need.

Monthly Donor

Facebook fundraiser

Unlike a one-time donation, monthly giving provides the United Way of Martin County with a predictable, reliable source of income. This allows us to plan strategically, invest in long-term initiatives, and weather unforeseen circumstances.
