Charitable Giving

The Watson Institute is fortunate to have a strong legacy of giving, including the original bequest of David T. and Margaret Watson that established the organization in 1917.

A variety of giving opportunities are available, including planned giving, commemorative giving, giving through The United Way and automated monthly giving.  Businesses can also contrbute through the Educational Improvement Tax Credit program (EITC). To make donating easier, The Watson Institute also offers online giving options. In addition, to support the charitable actions of their employees, many companies will match donations made to qualifying organizations, including The Watson Institute. Your donation to Watson could be doubled if your company offers this type of program. Contact your company’s human resources department to see if this opportunity is available when making your contribution to Watson.

Watson is also an approved organization of the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC).  The mission of the CFC is to promote and support philanthropy through a program that is employee focused, cost-efficient, and effective in providing all federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all.

Our CFC code is 38761.
