Planned Giving

As a member of National Women’s Health Network, your generosity has already made a difference in the lives of millions of women. You can invest in future generations of women by including the Network in your will, trust, or annuity. Your legacy gift to the NWHN will help to secure the Network’s future while reaffirming your belief in the right to honest, accurate health information, policy, and care.

To join NWHN’s Collective Legacy or for more information on making a bequest or planned gift to the National Women’s Health Network, please contact the Individual Giving Department at 202-682-2640.

When making your plans, we suggest the following language:

I give and bequeath to National Women’s Health Network, federal tax identification number 52-1081261, currently located at 1413 K Street, NW, Fourth Floor, Washington, DC 20004, the sum of $_________________________ or _______________% of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate for its general purposes.

If you have already included NWHN in your estate plans, we would appreciate it if you would notify us of your plans so that we may properly acknowledge you.

Please Note: With all estate planning options – as with any decisions with serious legal implications – NWHN strongly recommends that you consult with your attorney or accountant. We also suggest that you involve your loved ones in the process so that they are aware of your wishes and can assist you in obtaining your goals.

Stock Gifts

The gift of an appreciated asset is a powerful way to support the work of the National Women’s Health Network. While this giving strategy has many obvious financial benefits, no doubt the most important is the satisfaction of knowing that your support helps give women a greater voice within the health care system!

Your gift of securities will entitle you to a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize your tax returns. And in the case of appreciated securities, you may deduct the full fair market value of your gift once you have held onto the securities for at least one year. In addition, you will avoid paying capital gains tax on all stock that you chose to donate to the National Women’s Health Network.

How Can I Make a Gift of Stock?

You can authorize your stock broker or your bank to complete the transfer process. Please instruct your broker or bank to call 202-682-2640 to speak with someone on our member services team.

If you hold the physical securities (stock certificates), you can directly mail the certificate(s) without any endorsement or assignment to:

National Women’s Health Network
ATTN: Department of Individual Giving
1413 K Street, NW, 4th Floor
Washington, DC 20005
202-682-2640
nwhn@nwhn.org

Please enclose a letter stating the purpose of your gift (for example, “to benefit all of the programs of NWHN”). In a separate envelope, please include a signed stock power form for each gift (available from your bank or broker). Please note that except for your signature exactly as your name appears on the stock certificate, the stock power form should be blank.

If you’ve already made or intend to make a gift of stock to NWHN, please notify us so that we can process your gift of stock securely and accurately.

Workplace Giving

Payroll Deductions

If you are a military or federal employee, you can help support the work of the National Women’s Health Network by participating in the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). Many state and local government employees — and even those employed by private corporations — can also support the NWHN through payroll deduction.

This program automatically deducts charitable gifts from your paycheck monthly, bimonthly or weekly. Contributions to National Women’s Health Network are tax- deductible to the fullest extent allowable by law.

To participate, simply check with your human resources department to find out about your company’s Workplace Giving Program.

If your company does not have a Workplace Giving Program or if National Women’s Health Network is not one of the listed charities, please let us know and we will gladly contact them on your behalf. NWHN’s CFC # is 10485.

Employer Matching Gift Programs

Did you know that your gift to NWHN may be eligible to be doubled or even tripled?

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match tax-deductible charitable contributions made by their employees. Some companies even extend these matching benefits to gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

If your company provides matching gifts, request a matching gift form from your employer. Send the completed and signed form with your gift and we will handle the rest!
