To ensure there’s a Village for your neighbors and you, please support us with a contribution that will help Foggy Bottom West End Village remain a valuable community asset. Since membership dues do not cover all of the costs of running a Village, we need financial support to ensure that the Village is sustainable for the long term.
There are many costs involved in operating a Village including, but not limited to, staff salary and payroll taxes, office, supplies, utilities, liability insurance, programming, accounting, legal and licensing fees, the cost of communications and marketing materials. These costs are recurring and necessary for us to deliver quality services and programs to our members.
Options for Giving
There are several options for your gifts and donations: cash, stock, IRA beneficiary, insurance beneficiary, or as a bequest in a will. Your donations can be made under various categories: General Funds, Founding Donors Campaign, Reduced Fee Memberships Support, and our Annual Fundraising Gala. You can also honor or remember family, friends, members and others through your donation.
Donations of cars, boats, motorcycles now accepted
The Village is now able to take tax-deductible charitable donations of used cars, motorcycles and boats. We have a contract with Vehicles For Charity (VFC), a national organization that has arranged the sale of used vehicles for non-profits since 2001. VFC has an A+ Better Business Bureau rating and has served more than 2,000 charities.
Donors go to the VFC website at https://www.vehiclesforcharity.org.
• Click on “Donate.”
• Enter “Foggy Bottom West End Village” in the “Donate your vehicle to…” box
• Complete the rest of the form on that page.
• Check that you agree to the terms and conditions and click “Submit.”
A representative from VFC will call you to confirm. The representative will give you instructions on filling out the vehicle title and turning over the vehicle. After the vehicle is sold, VFC will tell you the amount of your charitable donation.
Your tax deduction will be based on the resale value of the vehicle at auction. The Village will receive 80% of the resale value.
To make a donation, you must have a vehicle title and VIN number. The vehicle must be in running order. You must know the mileage, make, model and year.
You do not have to be a Village member to make a donation, so talk to your family and friends!
