Remember a loved one with a memorial or tribute gift. A donation to Lutheran Community Services Northwest is a beautiful way to memorialize a loved one or to pay tribute to friends and relatives to mark special celebrations. Simply designate your gift as a memorial or tribute when you make your donation.
Make a gift of stocks, bonds, property or art. Donate stocks that have risen in value since you purchased them — called appreciated securities — and LCS Northwest can receive the value of your gift while you earn a significant break on your taxes. Check with your financial advisor or broker for details, or contact us with your questions.
Contribute your vehicle. Your old car, boat, airplane or RV may no longer be valuable to you, but it can bring cash to LCS Northwest while serving as a tax deduction for you. A partnership with Charitable Adult Rides & Services (CARS) enables LCS to accept the proceeds from donated vehicles anywhere in the nation. CARS will pick up your vehicle, running or not, and sell it at auction with the proceeds going to LCS Northwest. You will work with CARS directly to receive an IRS form with the tax-deductible amount realized from the vehicle’s sale. Learn more about vehicle donations or call 855-500-RIDE (855-500-7433) and mention you want your proceeds to benefit LCS Northwest.
Leave a legacy. Make a bequest in your will or remember Lutheran Community Services Northwest in other estate plans and you’ll leave a lasting legacy of generosity and caring. Learn more about legacy giving.
