ECA annual fund
When you donate to ECA, you can help us continue providing quality arts programming to the community. Annual fund donations help us with everything we do, specifically helping us to meet our day-to-day programming, facilities and operations needs. We could not survive without it! Your donation is fully tax-deductible to the extent permitted by the law. Click here to learn about the benefits we are happy to offer you as a donor. ECA's Tax Identification Number is 74-3089412.
There are many ways to support ECA, including providing goods and services to assist in the operation of the facility and enhancement of our space. We have provided a list of items that will enable us to continue entertaining and educating our community. If you have an item you wish to donate or can connect us with someone interested in supporting our facility in this way, please contact Jamie Herlich, Director of Development, at (425) 275-9485 or email@example.com. As with cash gifts, your donation of goods and services is tax-deductible at fair market value.
If you would like to make a gift to ECA but are unable to make a full direct cash donation, you may consider making a pledge now, then have your payments and tax deductions distributed over a few months or a few years. This provides you an opportunity to achieve your giving goals over time. Pledges can be made on-line or directly with Jamie Herlich, ECA Development Director.
Many corporations match employee and retiree contributions to non-profit organizations like Edmonds Center for the Arts. This list features corporations and foundations who have matched donations made by their employess to arts organizations but there are certainly many more. You may be able to double or even triple the impact of your gift by contacting your company's human resources department to obtain a matching gift form and to understand their procedures for claiming them.
ECA gratefully accepts gifts of stock, and you can receive significant tax benefits when you give long-term appreciated stock. In addition to a charitable gift tax deduction, a gift of stock may also offer the extra benefit of avoiding capital gains tax on the stocks' unrealized appreciation. Please speak to your Financial Advisor to better understand the tax benefits associated with this type of gift. To transfer stock, follow these instructions.
Honorary and Memorial Giving
A gift to ECA made in tribute is the perfect way to honor a special occasion or the memory of a friend or loved one. These honorary and memorial gifts receive special recognition in ECA's program, and recipients of the honorary tributes will be personally notified of the generous gift made in their name.
