We invite anyone who is interested in the work we do to support the Celtic Arts Foundation whether or not your ancestry is Scottish, Irish, or Celtic in any way.
We want to provide our friends and members with some information about Planned Giving to the Celtic Arts Foundation. As this wonderful organization has grown and developed more programs and events, it’s clear that people appreciate and look forward to activities such as the Skagit Valley Highland Games, the Masters of Scottish Arts Concert, Winter School, in addition to any of the scores of events we produce each year at the Littlefield Celtic Center in Mount Vernon. If you like what we do, our events and celebrations, then please consider including us in your estate plans. For most people, this will bring up two major questions: first, “why should we support the Celtic Arts Foundation?” and second, “how do we support the Celtic Arts Foundation through planned giving?”
Since incorporating as a non-profit organization in 1997, our mission has been to “sponsor, encourage and promote Celtic Culture through events and educational activities.” Over the decades, we’ve entertained literally hundreds of thousands of people at our major events, and many thousands more at our concerts, workshops and activities at our base of operations, the Littlefield Celtic Center. Simply put, our request for your support is really about nothing more complicated than keeping all these wonderful events and programs going. You may enjoy a more in-depth explanation by reviewing our Case statement for CAF Planned Giving 2019.
