Make your gift last through the Community Foundation

The contributions from the Community Foundation to our organization are significant. Last year the the Wenatchee River Institute benefited as part of the foundation's awards of about $4 Million to charitable causes within our community – and that is no small number.

Based on a recent study, if every person in Chelan, Douglas, and Okanogan counties left 10% of their will or estate to the Community Foundation – no matter how small or large – the Community Foundation would have an additional $18 million per year to directly support charitable causes in the region.

Community philanthropy means we all chip in together. It means every one of us gives something – no matter how big or small – back to the community that gives us so much. You don’t have to be a millionaire to give 10% back to your community – everyone’s contribution will make our community rich in its ability to preserve, protect, and enhance the place that we all love.

How do I Give 10?

It’s easy. Call your attorney today and tell them you want to Give 10 and include a charitable bequest in your will or estate plans.
