There are so many ways you can make an impact!

MONETARY

Mediators at the DRC are neutral, third party facilitators. They are present to help the clients communicate effectively about their dispute and encourage the clients to work collaboratively toward a solution. The mediators will not take sides or give advice. They will not tell you what to do or impose a decision on you.

Your donations serve your most vulnerable neighbors and help grow stable, fulfilling lives. Gifts will be used meaningfully and intentionally to maximize their impact on those who are in need. Thank you for your partnership to support local children, families, seniors, and individuals with disabilities.

Your donations can make a difference for so many. Gifts are used thoughtfully and intentionally to maximize their impact on the most vulnerable in our Western Washington communities.

DONOR ADVISED FUNDS

It is very important for clients to participate in mediation using basic rules of common courtesy. You will be asked to refrain from interrupting the other party, using inflammatory language, name calling and pushing the other parties hot buttons.

Consider growing your investment in VOAWW's mission through a grant from your donor-advised fund (DAF) by recommending a donation or recurring gift to support our communities' most vulnerable.

STOCKS

& BONDS

It is very important for clients to participate in mediation using basic rules of common courtesy. You will be asked to refrain from interrupting the other party, using inflammatory language, name calling and pushing the other parties hot buttons.

VEHICLES

Donating your car to VOAWW helps continue programs that directly impact families in the communities we serve. Your donation is fully tax deductible, and unlike many other vehicle donation services, 100% of the proceeds received remains with our organization.

Securities

Make a bigger impact by donating stocks, bonds, and mutual funds directly to VOAWW.  Donating appreciated securities is easy and convenient, and you may enjoy numerous tax benefits*, including:

  • Claiming the market value of the securities as a tax-deductible contribution (as opposed to the cost basis).

  • Avoiding capital gains tax, local and state taxes on the profit from the sale of securities.

  • Lowering the cost basis of the gift. Compared with donating cash or selling your appreciated securities and contributing the after-tax proceeds, you may be able to automatically increase your gift and your tax deduction.

* VOAWW does not offer tax advice. Please consult a financial advisor or tax professional for more information.

Gifts in

Your Will

Create a charitable plan that will benefit your family and support Volunteers of America Western Washington after your lifetime. A beneficiary designation gift is a simple and affordable way to make a gift. You can designate VOAWW as a beneficiary of a retirement, investment, or bank account or your life insurance policy.

A bequest is one of the easiest gifts to make. With the help of an advisor, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift be made to VOAWW as part of your estate plan. You can leave a lasting legacy to be remembered and honored, plus you may receive estate tax savings and lessen the tax burden on your family.​

We invite you to join the Volunteers of America Western Washington Legacy Society, a group of very special individuals and families who have remembered VOAWW in their estate plan through a documented planned gift.
