MAKING A GIFT THROUGH YOUR WILL
Making a gift through your will is a popular and simple way to support your community and/or the causes you care about. A gift through your will offers significant tax advantages and can leave a lasting legacy for you and/or your family.
When including the Renton Community Foundation in your will, you may focus your gift toward a general area of interest, designate a specific cause, charity, or fund, or leave it unrestricted so the Foundation board may apply it to the area of greatest need. If the gift is $10,000 or more, you may request the Foundation to establish a fund in your name to benefit the cause(s) you select. You may also specify the gift is treated as an endowment ($100,000 or more) so that the principal gift is maintained for the future and only earnings are disbursed to meet community needs.
Establishing a Named Fund through Your Will
If you wish to establish a fund (minimum $10,000 gift) through your will to address particular charitable needs, we recommend you contact the Foundation office to discuss your wishes and fill out a Fund Agreement to document your future preferences. In this way, you will have the confidence that when you’re gone, your fund will be created in the exact way you wished.
