How to Give

Getting Started

The Foundation is dedicated to helping donors support and conserve our watershed’s diverse natural lands and rich cultural heritage now and forever.

First determine if you wish to leave a gift now so you can enjoy the satisfaction of seeing your gift at work, or if you wish to Leave a Legacy™ for future generations to enjoy.  Discover Your Options has further information about gifts you can make now, and estate and deferred gifts.

If you wish to Leave a Legacy™, it is important to discuss this choice with your family so they are aware of your wishes.

The next step is to consult with your own legal and financial professionals to determine the best giving options for your personal circumstances. They will help you maximize tax benefits for you and your estate.

Lastly, please let the Foundation know about your intention. We want to understand your goals and ensure that we can respect your wishes and fulfill your intentions. We will also discuss how you would like your gift to be recognized or acknowledged.
