Becoming a Donor

Getting Started

  1. How do I start?
    You may call our gift planning department at 509-624-2606 to help you think about all of your charitable giving options
  2. What are my goals?
    Do you want to support an issue that has significance in your life? Do you want to develop a plan to introduce your children to charitable giving? Do you want to make a difference in your community? Whatever your reasons are, the staff at the Foundation can help you define your goals.
  3. When can I start giving?
    You might want to start giving immediately, or you may want to incorporate charitable giving into your estate plans. Either way, INWCF has the tools and expertise to help you achieve what you want to do, when you want to do it.
  4. What will I give?
    You can contribute a wide variety of assets into a charitable fund at the Foundation, which then becomes available for grants you recommend or if you prefer, the fund can become part of our community grants program. In this grant program, money is awarded for the communities' greatest needs and opportunities based on the Foundation's review of proposed projects from local nonprofits. We accept cash, securities, life insurance, real estate, and other assets.
  5. What do I want to support?
    Do you want to support your favorite arts and cultural venue? Would you like to give to environmental causes? Whatever the issue, INWCF can help you identify the organizations and programs and help you make the most of your giving.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or if you would like, you may call our Gift Planning department at 509-624-2606.
