Because SAWs does not charge low-income, permanently disabled persons for their ramps, we depend on the generosity of individuals, churches, corporations and nonprofit organizations to support our efforts. SAWs gratefully recognizes the generosity of our Major Gift and Planned Giving Donors below.

Legacy Society

The SAWs Legacy Society is comprised of individuals who have shared with us their provisions to include SAWs in their estate plans. Their future gifts to SAWs include bequests, retirement assets and life insurance. Planned gifts are important for ensuring the sustainability of SAWs over the long term, through the ups and downs of future economic cycles. We are profoundly grateful for the forward thinking of these individuals and their decisions to entrust these meaningful gifts to SAWs.
