Strategy to Build the Park with Donations and Grants

Support Friends of the Valdese Rec’s mission by leaving us a bequest. A bequest is a gift made to charity in your will or trust. Below is some basic bequest language to assist you and your attorney.

I hereby, give, devise and bequeath $_______ or _____% of the remainder of my estate to Friends of the Valdese Rec, Inc. , a non-profit organization located in Valdese, NC, Federal Tax ID #47-3614341, to be used for its general purposes.

Grants will also be applied for to help pay for the park. If you know of grants not on this list, let us know. Showing the community supports the park via donations is helpful in the grant application process.
