A Message from our CEO...

You told us what you needed, and we listened!

Recently, there’s been an increase in the number of nonprofits asking for support in promoting planned giving to their donors and volunteers. We’re working on a larger initiative that will provide robust support in the months to come…stay tuned for more info!

In the meantime, we’re delighted to offer an “Estate Planning 101: Your Life & Legacy”session scheduled for October 19, 2023, from 10-11:30am for you, your donors, and your volunteers.

During the complimentary session, attendees will be encouraged to include the nonprofits they *already* love and support in their estate plans – and will be presented with specific information about how to do so.

Rest assured, Kitsap Community Foundation will not use this opportunity to self-promote; rather, the focus of this session is to offer a safe, trusted space for your donors and volunteers to learn how to support you – the nonprofit they already love – with legacy gifts.

We encourage you to send a special invitation to your donors and volunteers and take advantage of this special outreach opportunity. Below is a promotion you can send electronically or place into newsletters, as appropriate.

Space is limited, so please encourage your constituents to RSVP early to secure their spots.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Kitsap Universalist Unitarian Fellowship for generously providing a venue for this session to benefit our local nonprofits, as well as our friends at BNY Mellon for partnering with us to present this vital information to your donors and volunteers!

As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out for any reason.

Warmest regards,


CEO, Kitsap Community Foundation
