How much is 5%?
Five percent is not a lot. Think about it:
§ 5% of a dollar= a nickel
§ If a major retailer launched an ad campaign touting a 5% sale on their merchandise, would anyone even bother to check it out?
§ If our total, individual tax burden was only 5%, wouldn’t we all be jumping for joy?
§ A 5% chance of freezing rain? That won’t send anyone to the store to buy milk and bread.
§ Let’s face it, we tip our waiters at least 15% and really don’t think anything about it.
Why is 5% so significant? Because if everyone in Washington County gave just 5% of their estate to the Washington County Community Foundation, in 10 years this could mean $16.5 million dollars for our community. Even though 5% is not a lot, it can add up. Think about it. Call the Washington County Community Foundation at 812-883-7334 for more information.
Washington County Community Foundation is a nonprofit public charity established in 1993 to serve donors, award grants, and provide leadership to improve Washington County forever
