Make an impact and leave a legacy

KBTC provides a space for civility, common ground, and inspirational learning.  When people can tell their stories and share their perspectives, our community is stronger, more connected and more informed.  Including KBTC in your will or estate plans ensures that trusted, vetted, high-quality education and entertainment remain free and accessible to all. Each and every gift is meaningful.  Thank you for investing back into the community with a legacy gift to KBTC.


The KBTC Association is a proud member of Leave 10 South Sound, a movement to bring transformational change to our communities through inspiring and encouraging individuals to leave at least 10% of their estate to charity.  Imagine the impact if we all left just 10% of our estate to organizations whose work we care about.  That would mean billions invested in meeting the needs of our community for generations to come!


Your gift matters!
