The Heritage Club, was established in 1982, as one of the first United Way planned giving societies in the county. The Heritage Club honors forward-thinking individuals choosing to improve the lives of children, families, and seniors in our community by including United Way in their estate plans. Through wisely planned gifts, members change lives for generations to come, providing perpetual support for United Way of Santa Barbara County's unique and innovative programs. Our Heritage Club Newsletter is now available online: 2018 Heritage Club Newsletter
Heritage Club members extend their United Way support for generations to come by committing to a $10,000+ planned gift. This commitment may be revocable or irrevocable. Gifts come in many forms: Bequests, Retirement Accounts, Life Insurance, Charitable Gift Annuities, Pooled Income Funds, Donor Advised Funds, Blended Gifts and more.
Members are invited to be listed on the United Way of Santa Barbara County Wall of Honor. They are also invited to be noted as Heritage Club members in the Annual Impact Report. Additionally, the annual Heritage Club Luncheon is hosted by United Way of Santa Barbara County as an opportunity for members to gather and celebrate each other and the work their gifts make possible.
