The Danner Society

Irene Danner made the first bequeathed gift to the YWCA Gettysburg & Adams County by willing her house on Lincoln Square for the organization’s first home. In honor of our 80th anniversary in 2009, we introduced The Danner Society, a special group of donors who include the YWCA in their wills or estate plans. Planned gifts can include cash, assets, property, life insurance, IRAs and other retirement funds, charitable remainder trusts, or annuities. These gifts are typically added to our Endowment Fund, but donors can choose to designate their gift any way they feel is appropriate.

All planned donations should be discussed between the donor, his or her financial advisor, and YWCA staff to ensure maximum benefit for each party. For more information, contact Mike Dorsette, director of finance and administration.
