Become a Friend of Johnson Creek
The most important way you can support the work of the Johnson Creek Watershed Council is by becoming a Friend of Johnson Creek with a tax-deductible donation of $35 or more. Your contribution helps make possible the important work of the JCWC, such as implementing restoration projects, educating youth and adults, and coordinating the efforts of our partners.
Network for Good is an online nonprofit that helps other nonprofits process credit card gifts. When you click on the Network for Good image above, it will take you to a special page the Watershed Council has on the Network for Good website. Once you create a username and password you can securely donate a gift directly to the Watershed Council on this site using your credit or debit card. Network for Good charges 5% on each transaction (which is the standard rate) but they provide an option for the donor to cover this small fee as well. If you have any questions or concerns about this process please don’t hesitate to contact our office at 503-652-7477.

The end of the year is an excellent time to consider a donation to Johnson Creek Watershed Council. While JCWC is always pleased to accept cash gifts, there are a number of options to consider. You might want to consider donating other assets.
For example, gifts to charitable organizations can include appreciated stocks or other securities, personal property, or real estate. These types of in-kind gifts make no impact on your cash flow during your lifetime, can relieve you of the burden of managing property, and help reduce your assets and taxes in the future.
JCWC can be named as a beneficiary on your life insurance policy or retirement fund. This can have real advantages when it comes to income and estate taxes since retirement funds may pass tax-free to charities.
Funding a charitable gift annuity or creating a charitable remainder trust can provide you a fixed, regular income for the rest of your life.
There are many ways to give that cost you nothing during your lifetime, reduce your capital gains, save on federal estate tax, and provide JCWC with valuable capital to help us accomplish our mission. If you have questions about how planned giving can benefit you and JCWC, an attorney, CPA or financial advisor can help you make a decision that works best for you.
