Leave a Legacy

How do you want to be remembered? You can make a lasting difference in the community you love. 

Establish your fund as a permanent endowment, or design it to make grants for a fixed period of years (often 10 to 20) before sunsetting. It can support a broad field of interest (such as children’s health, or seniors, or animal welfare), or a particular charity of your choice.

Do you have questions or are you looking for something you can’t find? Email or call our staff to talk about legacy giving at the Foundation. 


Madrona-Society-LogoThe Madrona Society is a group of donors who have named the Foundation in their wills with a bequest. The madrona tree is deeply rooted in its place. Those roots add stability to the tree’s environment, as Madrona Society members do to our community. In addition, healthy saplings can sprout from the fallen tree’s trunk, providing a base for growth and nourishment for new life.

Madrona trees are truly beloved in the Pacific Northwest. That’s the way we feel about our legacy givers as well.

If you are interested in learning more, please contact us. We will be happy to work with you and your financial advisor to meet your goals for charitable giving.
