If you are passionate about history, education, aviation, veterans, cultural programs or historic preservation, renovation and reconstruction, consider supporting the Fort Vancouver National Trust with a planned gift. We can help you leave a legacy that fits your values, dreams and goals while also preserving and enhancing the Fort Vancouver National Site.
A planned gift allows you to plan for your future while supporting your philanthropic goals. Planned gifts include bequests, retirement plan beneficiary designations, charitable gift annuities, charitable trusts, life insurance beneficiary designations along with gifts of real estate, securities and other properties.
Not only will your gift allow you to fulfill your philanthropic goals, but it may also provide you with charitable income tax deductions and help you lower or eliminate capital gains taxes by transferring appreciated assets to the Trust as gifts. You can also lower your estate taxes and provide your family with greater security.
We do not provide legal or financial advice, but we do provide information about gift planning tools for you to discuss with your legal and financial advisors to see if a gift plan is the right fit for you and your family. Please call Elson Strahan, the Trust’s President, to make a confidential appointment to discuss your goals.
