Giving that Creates Meaningful Impact

Leave A Legacy

Generosity Across Generations

From simple bequests to complex estate plans to life income gifts, Greater Tacoma Community Foundation offers opportunities to make your mark by leaving a legacy. Many people choose to leave charitable assets or gifts to GTCF through their estates, and we offer significant expertise in planned gifts.

Our Planned Giving website offers information on gift options, as well as helpful tools like examples of Bequest Language:

I hereby give, devise and bequeath _________ and No/100 dollars ($DOLLARS) to Greater Tacoma Community Foundation, a nonprofit organization located at 950 Pacific Ave, Tacoma, WA, 98402, Federal Tax ID #91-1007459, for Greater Tacoma Community Foundation’s general use and purpose.

Donors who name GTCF in their estate plans are recognized as members of the Legacy Society.

If you or your advisor has questions about estate gifts, please call Evelyn Ryberg with our Philanthropic Services Group at 253.345.4172.
