A message from Kathleen Marker, YWCA Northeast Kansas CEO

Dear Friends,

Since 1887, YWCA Northeast Kansas has been a unique and vital community resource in the greater Topeka region committed to eliminating racism and empowering women. As we look to a bright future, I’d like to share that August is National Make-A-Will Month: an annual observance that emphasizes the importance of creating a will, which can provide:

  • Security: Creating your will and estate plan allows you to community important financial and healthcare decisions, so you’re prepared for whatever the future may hold.
  • Peace of mind: A will allows you to provide for the people and pets you love, so you know that no matter what, they will be supported.
  • Impact: By including a legacy gift in your will, you can sustain our programming and advocacy work for generations to come.

YWCA Northeast Kansas is proud to announce a new partnership with FreeWill. Their free estate planning tool guides you through making your will in as little as 20 minutes and can even be used alongside an attorney for more complex needs.


While making your will, you can make an optional planned gift to YWCA Northeast Kansas at no cost. No matter its size, we would be grateful for your legacy to join us in supporting survivors, empowering women, and promoting racial justice throughout our community.

Last MAWM, over 70,000 people trusted FreeWill to help them create their will and protect what they love at no cost. Join them today to make a difference for your loved ones!

In solidarity,

Kathleen Marker, CEO
