By including a gift to the Greater Gig Harbor Foundation in your will or living trust, you ensure that your support for the community continues for generations to come and inspires others to give. Planning your legacy now will help create the foundation for a healthy, vibrant future for our community. And, you’ll see first-hand the difference your support will make.

Do I Need to Be Rich to Make a Difference?
Absolutely not! For example, let’s say you currently contribute $200 yearly to the ONE Community Annual Campaign – a gift of $6,000 in your will would perpetuate that gift. The table below demonstrates what your gift would generate each year for the Foundation.
