BRUW launching planned giving partnership

The Bartlesville Regional United Way and the Bartlesville Community Foundation have partnered with the Advancement Group to provide planned giving support for area nonprofits.

Nonprofits were given the opportunity to sign up to receive this support, and 10 local organizations took advantage of the opportunity.

“We’re helping provide this because agencies don’t have the expertise, time or funding to have a planned giving department themselves,” CEO and Executive Director Jody Burch said. “This will help promote long-term sustainability for our local nonprofit community.”

To kickstart this sustainability effort, the BCF and the BRUW are funding a Challenge Grant. By getting planned giving pledges, agencies will have the opportunity to earn grant funding now as well as getting funds later that will help their long-term efforts in the community. Through the partnership, up to $200,000 in grant funding could be given out to the qualifying nonprofits if certain criteria are met.
