Making a gift to the WCA Foundation is a wonderful way to remember a loved one. When you make a gift, you will receive an acknowledgement letter for tax purposes. We will also send notification that a gift has been made to the honoree’s family (provided that we have their contact information). Please note, the amount of the gift is not disclosed to the honoree’s family.
There are many ways to make a memorial gift:
Online: Choose one of the categories on our Donate page
By Mail: Please make your check payable to WCA Foundation and mail it to:
51 Glasgow Avenue
PO Box 840
Jamestown, NY 14702-0840
Please make a note in the memo line that the gift is being made in memory of your loved one, and include their name. Please also note if the funds should be directed to a specific fund.
By Phone: If you would like to make a gift by phone using a credit or debit card, please call 716-664-8665 and we will be happy to assist you.
If you would like to ask friends and family to contribute to the WCA Foundation in lieu of flowers: You may include our mailing address above, and our web address wcafoundationjamestown.org/donate in the obituary.
Because these donations are such an important tribute, we also like to share notification of the memorial gifts we receive in your loved one’s memory. For this reason, we ask that a family member or friend contact the WCA Foundation at 716-664-8665 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org to provide the following information:
- Name of your loved one
- Name of surviving family contact (who we will notify by mail when gifts are received)
- Mailing address for this family contact
- If the funds should be directed to a specific Fund
We will notify your family contact of any gifts we receive, and provide you with the name and address of the thoughtful donors. Please note, the amount of the gift is not disclosed to the honoree’s family. Donors themselves also receive a thank you letter with a tax receipt.
