Planned Giving

When you include the Junior League of Kansas City Missouri in your estate plans, you are investing in the future of the League. The most important aspect of your planned gift to the League is the knowledge that you are making a commitment to our Mission, membership and community for generations to come. Your gift will continue the rich tradition of the League serving those in need.

Donors making an estate gift will be recognized as members of the Oglebay Society. Mary Oglebay (later Mary Oglebay Neal) was a founding member of our organization and also became its first president, serving two leadership terms. Named in her honor, The Oglebay Society continues the founders’ legacy of foresight and planning, both necessary as ever to assure ongoing community impact.

There are a number of planned giving options to include the League of Kansas City, Missouri in your estate plans.  Some of these include:
