You, too, can help build a foundation of support for healthcare throughout the Foothill Communities. The more you give, the greater your effect on our local healthcare system, and the more you will inspire others in the community to follow your example. Our community needs your support to become a healthier, more vibrant place to live. Everyone can contribute to our efforts at a level that’s right for you and your family!
Since 1982, generous and caring people have given more than $3,000,000 to the Rainier Foothills Wellness Foundation to help so many area residents in so many ways.
Annual Giving is simply the giving to the Foundation on a regular yearly basis. No matter how much you wish to contribute, a valuable aspect of Annual Giving is that it allows the Foundation to plan its annual plan to disburse funds in advance of the receipt of your yearly gift.
Estate Plan contributions are wonderful ways to support the work of the Foundation. Donors may make bequests from their estates by naming the Rainier Foothills Wellness Foundation:
In partnership with Rainier Foothills Wellness Foundation (RFWF), you can leave a legacy that will affect sustainable change in the lives of underserved in our community for years to come.
Memorial Gifts are a lasting remembrance and memorial of a special person who has touched our lives. Donors create these gifts as expressions of friendship, love, admiration or sympathy. These gifts may be designated to a particular area of interest. Where the individual has not designated a specific purpose for his or her gift, it is used to meet the communities’ most urgent needs.
Planned gifts create reliable funding streams, ensuring RFWF has sustainable resources to support our mission in reaching our underprivileged population. Additionally, planned gifts to RFWF are a fantastic way to both demonstrate your legacy of support for a healthy community while also securing personal tax benefits for your future plans.
A typical planned gift is bequest language designating a gift to Rainier Foothills Wellness Foundation within a will or trust. Please reference the below sample bequest language that uses our legal name Rainier Foothills Wellness Foundation, Inc. and federal tax identification number 91-1192604.

Pledges are a promise to give, and the advantage is that you receive immediate recognition, but make payments over two or three years. Pledges may be paid through automatic debit banking and, in some cases, payroll deduction.
Some companies match the donations of their employees with a corporate gift. Usually, the company provides a form to give to our Foundation at the time of your donation. We endorse and return the form, and the company sends us a matching contribution. For recognition purposes, we credit gifts to the employee unless otherwise informed.
