Legacy Giving

Are you passionate about preservation? Do you support a vision of Washington’s future wherein historic and cultural sites are valued and protected, historic downtowns are revitalized and celebrated, and authentic placemaking and collaborative partnerships come together to build vibrant communities? If so, consider supporting the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation by making a planned gift! In doing so, you will join our Legacy Circle, a select group of people working to save the places that matter in Washington State for generations to come.

Examples of planned gifts include bequests, retirement plan beneficiary designations, life insurance beneficiary designations, gifts of stock, and gifts of real estate. Depending on the type of gift, you may be eligible for charitable income tax reductions, reduced/eliminated capital gains taxes, and reduced estate taxes.

Furthermore, we will work with you to ensure that the impact of your gift aligns with your area of interest within the Washington Trust’s scope of work—which might include supporting our Valerie Sivinski Endowment providing funding to grassroots preservation projects across the state, our stewardship of the Seattle landmark Stimson-Green Mansion, our efforts to establish a Revolving Fund to protect endangered historic sites, and more.

We recommend that you speak with your financial advisor about any intended planned gifts. While the Washington Trust cannot provide legal or financial advice, we’re happy to provide information about gift planning options so you can evaluate what is the right fit for you. Contact Development Director Kristy Conrad at 206-624-9449 or kconrad@nullpreservewa.org.
