In Memoriam Gifts
Remembering an attorney or judge with a gift to the King County Bar can be a thoughtful gesture of condolence. Often the bar will receive individual gifts from those seeking to honor the deceased, and in other situations colleagues of a deceased member of the bar or bench will organize a collection of donations to the King County Bar in the name of the attorney or judge who is no longer with us. The King County Bar will send the family of the deceased a special letter acknowledging all memorial gifts and note them in our annual donor report, hopefully inspiring others to make similar contributions. To make a memorial gift now, visit www.kcbf.org/donate or send gifts c/o the mailing address at the bottom of this page.
King County Bar supporters listed in the box to right of this page have chosen themselves to designate a planned gift upon their own or their survivors’ death are recognized as members of our Legacy Group. Donors decide whether they wish their eventual gift to be placed in the bar’s permanent Endowment Fund, or applied to current programmatic needs ensuring access to justice and encouraging diversity in the legal profession. Legacy Group members make this pledge distinct from their annual contributions, which remain critical to ongoing current foundation programs.
To learn more about the Legacy Group, contact the King County Bar's Executive Director to discuss how these options and other planned giving options might work for you and your family. You will also want to talk with your family and friends about your plans and personal wishes in addressing family needs as well as your legacy gift. Please also remember to consult with your legal and tax advisors, and let them know you are considering a planned gift to the King County Bar Foundation. They can assist you in determining what type of gift best suits your personal and financial circumstances.
