Other Ways to Give

By making a financial contribution to one of the three entities (Education, Tumwater Falls Park, Schmidt House) the Foundation owns, operates and maintains, you make a statement that the completion and care of this first-class Foundation is important to you, and you are an important part of our success. Your support, at any level, and in whatever manner you choose, has an impact on the Foundation’s future.

There are variety of ways to give, allowing you, the donor, to contribute to us in a manner that bests suits your philanthropic interests and abilities.

There are several other ways you can help:

  • Gifts of Stock
    By making a gift of your appreciated securities, your investment goes further, both for you and the Foundation. You get the tax benefit of the value of the gift on the date of transfer, and you may possibly not have to pay capital gains tax.

  • Matching Gifts
    Is your company as generous as you are? You might be surprised to learn that your employer may match the gifts you’re already making to the Olympia Tumwater Foundation. Many companies encourage employee philanthropy by matching the charitable contributions made by their employees to qualified organizations. If you company has a matching gift program, the impact of your gift to the Olympia Tumwater Foundation could be doubled or even tripled. And it’s really easy to do.
  • Planned Giving
    Making a bequest or other planned gift to the Olympia Tumwater Foundation is a great way to ensure your legacy is as permanent as the Olympia Tumwater Foundation’s impact on our local community in Thurston County. And there may be tax and other financial benefits to you as well.

For more information on these giving programs, please contact the Foundation’s office at (360) 943-2550 or jfreedman@olytumfoundation.org.
