WE INVEST IN PARTNERSHIPS, NON PROFITS AND PROJECTS THAT TACKLE COMMUNITY CHALLENGES, HELP MEET CRITICAL NEEDS AND IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR ALL OUR NEIGHBORS.
Your gift to the Foundation is an investment in good people doing great things. We’ll transform your generosity into powerful, active resources to support work that is important to you. When and how you give is up to you. You can make a gift today to a project or organization you love, become part of our Madrona Society by including the Foundation in your estate planning or both. Or you can create your own fund. The Foundation is home to more than 350 separate funds – each with a unique purpose, each created by a visionary individual, family, nonprofit or corporation. It’s easy to get started — you can establish a fund here in about an hour.
Partnering with the Foundation is often much easier for donors than setting up a private foundation and there are many benefits to pooling your funds with other philanthropists. We are an organization with deep roots in Whatcom County communities with the involvement of many local leaders. We can help you build permanent endowed funds that benefit the community forever and create personal legacies.
We accept different kinds of assets and can facilitate even the most complex forms of giving, including Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCD) , stock transfers, pass through gifts/grants, and gifts of real estate. Please send us this Gift Commitment form should you wish to send a gift via check or stock so that we know how you would like it designated.
“We’re excited to be a
part of the Foundation
– it’s an adventure in
building and strengthening
our community. What
could be more thrilling?”
– John & Joyce Pedlow
