Leave a legacy for Westwind!

A meaningful way for you to support Westwind’s mission is to leave a bequest to Westwind in your will, living trust or with a codicil. One significant benefit of making a gift by bequest is that it allows you to continue to use the asset you will leave to charity during your life. Another benefit is that you are able to leave a lasting legacy to carry Westwind into a more secure future.

Bequest Benefits

A bequest is generally a revocable gift, which means it can be changed or modified at any time. You can choose to designate that a bequest be used for a general or specific purpose so you have the peace of mind knowing that your gift will be used as intended. Bequests are exempt from federal estate taxes. If you have a taxable estate, the estate tax charitable deduction may offset or eliminate estate taxes, resulting in a larger inheritance for your heirs.

It is thanks to you, our supporters, that Westwind can invest over $1,000,000 each year in life-changing programs that serve children, families, and community members so that they can have the unique opportunity to explore one of the most pristine places on the Oregon coast. These experiences inspire life-long learning, artistic expression, leadership in youth, and a passion for the environment and the natural world that cannot be replaced.
Monthly gifts are so important because they allow you to invest in a consistent and long-term future for our programs, and create a meaningful impact that can span the lifetime of a single camper from preschool to adulthood.
