Supporters of the Coastal Interpretive Center [a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization] can create a bequest by including directions to that effect in their will. The same result can be achieved by adding the Center as a named beneficiary to life insurance policies or investment documents.
The donor may choose to keep bequests confidential. This may be important for those who wish to remain anonymous and not become candidates for other fundraising efforts. Many donors like the idea that they can easily change their bequests should their area of primary interest change at some point in the future.
Center management can meet with potential donors to discuss specific Center programs and services that may benefit from a bequest. The Center’s legal representative can review a draft bequest if the donor so chooses. In addition, we can arrange a meeting with representatives of the Grays Harbor Community Foundation to discuss their bequest investment accounts that can be of mutual benefit to both the donor and the Center.
