Planned Giving

“My residency at Hedgebrook was the first time I felt truly valued as a writer. I have taken myself more seriously since then. Hedgebrook remains close to my heart, and it makes me happy to know my gift will benefit other women writers.” ~ Sharon Carter, Alumna

One of the greatest legacies one can give is to plan for the continuation of what one values in life.

If women’s voices move you to make a difference, you can ensure they continue to be heard by including Hedgebrook in your will, trust, or other estate planning devices.
