Ensure the Future Endowment Donation

Resilient Climate Solutions

“Ensure the Future” Endowment Donation 

Support your community’s future with us as we build an endowment for CET. Together, we can make sure we will be here for vibrant, climate resilient homes and businesses.  

In 2015 we started endowment to ensure we are here to help those who need us in the years to come. The fund currently holds xxx million dollars. Our assets are conservatively invested for the long term, while a portion of the investment income can be used to address special challenges or new opportunities in the future.  

Give Now

Give a gift of $1000 or more in cash or securities. A gift designated for the endowment, in addition to your annual support, makes an immediate impact by generating investment revenue.

Make a gift directly from your IRA to the Center. Individuals age 70 1/2 and older may contribute $1 to $100,000 per year directly from their IRA to CET and satisfy all or a portion of the required minimum distribution.

Note: Gifts to charity from IRAs are not considered income thus are not eligible as an income tax deduction.  

Give Later

Make CET a beneficiary of retirement assets-in full or for a percentage. Retirement assets pass to a charity tax free and are often the best asset for charitable donations, minimizing taxes to non-spouse heirs.

Make CET a beneficiary of a life insurance policy – in full or for a percentage.

 Make CET a beneficiary of your will or trust – in full or for a percentage.

When naming the Center for EcoTechnology as a beneficiary, please include our tax ID #042-611-726.

CET is so well managed, and so well run, that gives us reassurance about making our contribution to the endowment. The lands belong to those who came before us and those who come after us, and it’s our job to take care of them responsibly, and that’s been our aim.”

– Sandy & Betsy Belden
