OTHER WAYS TO SUPPORT BHV
Would you like to recognize a friend or neighbor? The Flamingo Flock is a fun fundraiser for Brave Heart Volunteers and a great way for you to recognize your loved ones for all the good things they do to make Sitka a better place!
To honor your friends, simply make a donation to Brave Heart Volunteers and the flock will land in their yard with a special message from you. After a period of enjoyment, they'll fly away to the yard of the next Flamingoed friend!
So pass on the love and let your friends know they have been Flamingoed for Being of Brave Heart in our community!
Contribute to the BHV Endowment Fund
The Brave Heart Volunteers Endowment Fund was established in 2013 with a generous donation by David and Marge Steward, and has been skillfully managed by Dennis Longstreth. Growing our Endowment builds sustainability for BHV; when it reaches $500,000, we can draw 2.5% to sustain our operations. Please consider a bequest or other planned gift today!
Make a Qualified Charitable Distribution
Want to make a lasting impact and save money on your taxes? If you are at least 70-1/2 years old, a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) is a meaningful way you can support Brave Heart Volunteers and save on your taxes. A QCD is a direct transfer of funds from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA) to a qualified nonprofit organization like BHV. The amount transferred to BHV is applied toward your required minimum distribution and is not taxable to the IRA owner, up to $100,000. To learn more about qualified charitable distributions, please visit the IRS Website. Thank you for supporting Brave Heart Volunteers!
