Gifts from your Estate

When you include NAYA Family Center in your will or estate, you’re making an investment in the future of our region’s Native community. Bequests and planned gifts help NAYA continue to provide NAYA’s life affirming programs for years to come.


A donation of shares held for more than a year is eligible for the same income tax deduction as gifts of cash, should you itemize. Also, if the donated shares increased in value, you avoid the capital gains tax that would be owed when you sell those shares.

Fred Meyer Community Rewards

Fred Meyer is donating $2.5 million per year to non-profits in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington, based on where their customers tell them to give. Here’s how the program works:

  • Sign up for the Community Rewards program by linking your Fred Meyer Rewards Card to the Native American Youth and Family Center at fredmeyer.com/communityrewards. You can search for us by our name or by our non-profit number, DK760.
  • Every time you shop and use your Rewards Card, you are helping NAYA Family Center earn a donation!
  • You still earn your Rewards Points, Fuel Points, and Rebates, just as you do today.
  • If you do not have a Rewards Card, they are available at the Customer Service desk of any Fred Meyer store.
