Make Sustainable Ballard, Sustainable, With Your Planned Giving Strategies
“It’s important to Sustainable Ballard’s long-term viability that we receive the generous support of our community and members through cash gifts, appreciated assets, and bequests, large and small”, says board member Eric Smith. He went on, “these special giving options give our most dedicated members an effective way to support Sustainable Ballard’s programs that transform our community in tangible ways, making a better tomorrow for all.”
If you would like to make a tax-deductible cash gift or donation of appreciated assets Sustainable Ballard, a 501(c)3 non-profit, can accept your gifts directly. Please directly contact a board member for details.
Providing for Sustainable Ballard in your estate plans can be as simple as adding a codicil to your existing will. You can make a specific dollar amount or a percentage bequest, a residuary bequest, or a contingent bequest. This ideally requires advance consultation with your financial planner and/or attorney.
Executive Director Jenny Heins adds, “Even a mostly volunteer-run organization such as ours needs help covering its expenses incurred in furthering its mission. Community financial support helps us deliver programs educating the community and promoting renewable energy, water wise gardens, urban organic gardening, and local social justice issues.”
If you have already made provisions for Sustainable Ballard in your will or another type of planned gift, please let us know. Unless you wish to remain anonymous, we will recognize your generosity and publish your name occasionally in newsletters, web pages, or festival program guides.
If you are interested in learning more about cash gifts, donating appreciated assets, or future gifts by bequest please contact a board member at firstname.lastname@example.org or (206) 701-7000.
Disclaimer: Neither Sustainable Ballard nor its board or staff are qualified to offer financial, legal, or accounting advice. Please consult with your personal advisors in the process of considering these planned giving strategies.
Your contribution helps fund new projects, community outreach and cover monthly costs for meeting space, storage and utilities.
