Ways to Give
Whether you want to support children’s programs, protect the environment, help students go to college, build arts and culture, or give generally to the greater good, your community foundation provides several ways for you to give back – today and forever.
Give to a Specific Fund
We manage over 400 individualized funds that support many causes across North Central Washington. You can donate online and select a fund that is right for you, or mail/deliver your cash or check to our office. We also accept gifts of stock – please contact us directly so we can ensure your transaction is smooth and easy.
Establish a Fund to Support Causes You Care About
Perhaps you have one, or two, or several causes that you feel passionate about and want to financially support. Maybe you have the desire to help kids get to college. You want to invest in these needs now, and you want to make sure the giving can continue long past your lifetime.
Your giving here grows. Establishing a fund provides an opportunity for you to give directly to organizations that are working on the causes you care about most, or provide financial assistance to students that need help getting to college – forever.
Our goal is to fulfill your dreams. We set up a private consultation and work with you one on one to determine the type of fund that is best for you.
Give Through Your Will
In 1999, Harold and Margaret Weed left a significant gift to the foundation in their will to ensure their favorite charities would continue receiving support beyond their lifetime. Today, their fund distributes thousands of dollars a year to these agencies, while the balance of the fund continues to grow far beyond the original gift and allows the giving to continue, forever.
Leaving a portion of your estate to your community foundation is one of the greatest ways you can impact your community long past your lifetime. We work directly with Professional Advisors to help you leave a legacy that can make a difference for generation to come.
Give in Memory
One of the lasting ways to remember a loved one is to establish a fund in their memory. Memorial gifts are collected on the behalf of the family and we work with the family to determine how best to honor your loved one. This can mean establishing a fund in their name, or simply giving to one or more of their favorite charitable causes.
To learn more about giving in memory or any of our ways to give, you can always contact our staff at 509-663-7716 or email Beth Stipe, executive director, for a private consultation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
