PLANNED GIVING AND BEQUESTS
By arranging for a bequest or gift of life insurance and telling us now, you can help us plan today for the critical conservation work essential to conserving and protecting habitat for future generations.
What is a Bequest?
A bequest is a gift made in your will – and a highly effective way of carrying on your support for the people and causes that mattered most to you during your lifetime.
How do I include a gift in my will?
Whether or not you already have a will, the easiest way to include a gift in your will is to get professional help from a legal advisor experienced in preparing wills. If you need help finding a suitable legal advisor or financial planner, we would be happy to assist you.
