Make a difference by donating to the 2018 Annual Appeal today!
As Executive Director of The Foggy Bottom West End Village, I want to personally thank you for your continued generous support of our mission to help seniors remain in our neighborhood as they grow older. For you review, I have enclosed our 2017 Annual Report highlighting the significant results we achieved as we make an impact in the community.
Again, this year we are asking you to help subsidize our Reduced Fee Memberships, so that we can continue to offer and finance memberships for the foreseeable future. We are also asking you to help cover the rent for our office campus and “home” at St. Paul’s Parish.
The Village, opened in 2013, has 157 members and more than 50 volunteers. We are self-supporting and receive very limited funding from the District of Columbia and no federal funding resources. Your gift is critical.
In 2013 we received a grant that allowed us to rent space at St. Paul’s Parish for our office as well as the many social and cultural activities we offer every week. These funds will run out in March of 2019.
You know the value of strong community ties that form the basis of our Village and the value of having a convenient office and meeting place that is easily accessible. The Village is an IRS designated 501(c) (3) charitable organization and all donations are tax-deductible to the full extent provided by law. All donors will receive a receipt for tax purposes and be recognized in our Annual Report, newsletter and website unless they choose to be anonymous. Several donors have asked about IRA charitable deductions, so I have attached a stock donation form for your convenience.
Please join me and make a difference. Make a donation today!
Checks should be made out to Foggy Bottom West End Village, Inc. marked in the memo line for the 2108 Annual Appeal and mailed to FBWE Village, 2430 K St, NW, Washington, D.C. 20037. To donate via our website, click on the Annual Appeal button on the right side of this page.
With sincere thanks,
Why we need donations
To ensure there’s a Village for you and your neighbors when you need us, please support us today.
Membership dues only cover about 30-40 per cent of all costs of running a Village, so we need additional financial support to ensure that the Village is sustainable for the long term.
There are many costs involved including staff salary and payroll taxes; rent; supplies; utilities; insurance; computer support; accounting, legal and licensing fees, and communications and marketing materials. These costs are necessary for us to deliver quality services and programs to our members.
We successfully seek government and foundation grants, but these generally do not cover the core costs of operating the Village.
So we need your donation -- large or small -- to keep us in the black.
Your donations are tax-deductible
FBWE Village is an IRS-designated 501(c)(3) charitable organization; therefore, all donations are tax-deductible to the full extent provided by law.
All donations acknowledged
You will receive a written acknowledgement of your gift that will be your record for tax purposes.
