Each year, with the annual dues notice, WBC members are asked to make a voluntary, tax deductible contribution to support the Foundation.
As a member of the Washington Building Congress, you are also part of a dynamic nonprofit foundation established by the WBC for charitable, educational and scientific purposes. The Washington Building Congress Foundation, in cooperation with leading industry organizations, presented the first Builders Ball on October 19, 1996, consolidating the charitable activities of the Capital Region's real estate, design and construction associations. This tradition continued in 1998, 2000, 2002 and 2004, which were also a tremendous success.
The Washington Building Congress Foundation is exempt from Federal taxes under Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donors may deduct contributions for income tax purposes as provided in the Code. Further, bequests, legacies, devices, transfers, or gifts to the Foundation for the Foundation's use are deductible for Federal estate and gift tax purposes.
