Planned Giving

There are many ways to make an impactful gift to ensure a future of clean water. Chris Magaña, President IMS Capital Management, and Eric Weiland, estate planning attorney and partner at Samuels Yoelin Kantor donated their time to help donors understand how to maximize your charitable giving while minimizing your tax burden.

It is donors like you that power Columbia Riverkeeper’s work. Because of your trust and support we are able to fund community organizers working in communities directly under threat by dirty fossil fuel terminals, attorneys to fight for strong clean water legislation and take polluters to court. Because of our donors, we are not reliant on grants and can jump in to fight these projects and support the communities they threaten. You empower us to jump in when fossil fuel proposals are nascent ideas and keep pushing until they are defeated. So far we have an amazing track record of stopping climate-destroying projects. 

Watch our planned giving webinar to learn how non-cash gifts can be beneficial to you while making a greater impact for healthy rivers. Chris and Eric demystify donating stocks, estate planning, and the potential tax benefits of IRA disbursements. 

If you have questions or want to learn more please reach out to Dianne Riley, Development Director at, (541) 399-3260. You can also reach out directly to Chris or Eric with any specific questions about the tax benefits of giving or estate planning.
