While we encourage you to give through SPCCF soon, today we do want you to take the time to think about which nonprofits, activities, community sectors, and potential giving opportunities are important to you, and how you would like to support those worthwhile causes now, and into the future.

If, each year, you donate to a variety of organizations, whether it is $100 or $1,000 or more, please keep doing so. These regular donations are very important to those organizations!

Please talk to your tax advisor, estate planner, or attorney if you are planning to make a gift to the foundation. There may be tax or estate implications, and we want you to be fully informed of those implications. If you would like someone from SPCCF to talk to you, or to your financial advisor, please contact us. Our board members will be happy to talk to you.

Donation options include online, by connecting to the fund you want to donate to, or by check via the mail.

If donating to an existing fund by check, please download and fill out the required contribution form and mail it with your check to the address at the bottom of the form. Please write checks to SPCCF, and on the memo line, the name of the fund you wish to donate to. Our mailing address is SPCCF, PO Box 75, Nahcotta WA 98637.

Your community thanks you!

Donate A Car Or Other Vehicle

SPCCF participates in the Center for Car Donations program, which handles all the details of selling your car and transferring the registration. We typically receive 30% of the car's value. Call our office to see if your car qualifies.

To improve valuations, if your car is in good running order, have it washed and detailed before it is picked up.

The process is simple: You fill out the online form, and Center for Car Donations contacts you to arrange pick up, which takes less than two weeks.
