Other Ways to Give
Planned Gifts to Wing Haven
Through a planned or deferred gift you can make a significant impact on the preservation of this treasured piece of Charlotte’s history and culture. Planned gifts are used to support the permanent endowment, fund a special project or educational program, or contribute to the reserve fund in ways that will permanently support and sustain this remarkable garden.
In-Kind Contributions and Corporate Sponsorships
Programs, projects, garden maintenance and repairs to the Clarkson home and grounds often require products and services that have a significant impact on our operating budget. Through the generosity of businesses and individuals, in-kind gifts that support these activities can help reduce our expenses, allowing us to focus our spending in other areas such as improved educational programs and expanded community outreach. Following are some suggestions of in-kind gifts that can help us save dollars that can be used elsewhere:
In-kind gifts can be acknowledged in The Warbler, Wing Haven’s quarterly newsletter that is mailed to over 3,000 households in the Charlotte area and in some cases in our annual Membership Report. Often there are other opportunities for acknowledgement, which can be explored at the time of donation.
Wing Haven’s long standing in the Charlotte community and its prominence as a cultural, environmental and educational resource combine to create an attractive opportunity for corporate sponsorships. Established businesses as well as new businesses seeking to make an impact are ideal corporate partners. Advertising and print recognition and corporate entertaining opportunities can be tailored to meet your needs. Partnerships are available in a wide range of levels and include education/outreach programs, facilities construction and preservation, Garden Gala, Symposium and other special events. Businesses that focus on landscape design, “green” products and practices, leisure/active clothing and equipment, outdoor entertainment, construction, and gardening and birding supplies among others would be natural partners with Wing Haven. Direct exposure to our large and committed membership base is another benefit of sponsorship. Corporate sponsorships also may be in the form of in-kind donations.
