Endowment Gift

The Greater Tacoma Community Foundation provides professional gift planning assistance and facilitates gifts of all types.

The Dr. Jerry V. Ramsey & Elaine Perdue Ramsey Endowment Fund at the GTCF provides unrestricted support to advance our mission. It is also possible to establish separate funds for the support of specific purposes. Individuals and families create these funds, usually named, to address a need or support a program of special importance to them.

A charitable bequest is a gift made under the terms of a will. Because a bequest is flexible and revocable, it is the most common of type of deferred gift. With a bequest, it is possible to continue your support and commitment to Tacoma Historical Society far into the future.
