For over a century, Third Street Alliance, once the Easton YWCA, has provided the community with a variety of programs and services. Foundational support through planned giving from donors like you has empowered us to continue to evolve as society has; moving forward from an agency that rented rooms and lobbied for child labor laws to one concerned with the homeless, the elderly, and the education of young children.It is your thoughtful investment in our mission that enables us to take a proactive approach to homelessness prevention so we can continue to meet the needs of our clients. Planned giving is a special way that you can remember the people or places that are most meaningful to you while ensuring a lasting, positive impact on generations to come.
Planned gifts can be very easy to do.
There are several ways to name Third Street Alliance as a beneficiary and leave a lasting legacy on the organization and the community.
A planned gift is simply a way to determine during your lifetime where your assets will go – gifts to be given now or later. In addition to making an outright contribution, one of the simplest ways to make a planned gift is through a bequest in a Will. Your legal or tax advisor can help you decide which of the three common ways of making a bequest – a specific amount, a percentage of the estate, or the residue of the estate – best meets your wishes and maintains support for your heirs. Other easy methods to plan a gift is to name an agency as the beneficiary of a savings account, life insurance policy, or retirement account.
We encourage prospective donors to consult with their personal tax and financial advisors concerning the specific details of making a planned gift to Third Street Alliance. We would be pleased to discuss, in confidence, ways in which you could support Third Street Alliance and the services you feel most passionate about.
Did you know Helen Shafer?
Ms. Shafer was a secretary in the Easton area whose legacy helped four local nonprofits, including Third Street Alliance. Her bequest was the beginning of our endowment fund, and our Bixler courtyard marks her generosity.
The financial strength and secure future of our agency depends on the support we receive from such friends. Your planned gift will make a difference for years to come.
