|A planned giving program allows those who wish to pledge a portion of their estate to the Dahmen Barn Foundation in advance. Such gifts will ensure the future of the Dahmen Barn and its place in the Palouse art world. |
Donations of cash, real property or future income from investments or other similar holdings are gratefully accepted. Donors may specify a percentage of their estate, a specific amount, or the residue of their estate. For example, a local farmer recently left the net proceeds from a specific portion of her farm ground over the next 40 years to a local non-profit.
A capital improvement project such as:
~ restoration of the silo
~ improving the field between the road and the highway to include parking and outdoor art displays
Ongoing maintenance and operations
~ for the public such as providing for scholarships for classes or to bring a visiting artist from outside the area to the Barn
~ for the resident artisans to enable them to enroll in classes and workshops to enhance their skills;
~ scholarships or materials for kids' art classes
~ funds to enable school children to come to the Barn for a creativity experience.
Other creative ideas are welcomed.
Donors are encouraged to consult their estate planner or attorney for appropriate language for making a planned gift to the Dahmen Barn.
