Your gift: easy, lasting, powerful
Clean water to drink and clean air to breathe; lakes and rivers that are safe for swimming and fishing; vibrant parks and wild forests that offer the opportunity to experience nature’s beauty and wonder; clean, renewable sources of energy that don’t pollute and never run out; and of course, a stable climate — all this and more should be the heritage we leave to future generations.
Yet the threats to our environment and our families’ health won’t go away anytime soon. With your help, neither will we.
We would consider it an honor to be remembered in your will.
Making a charitable bequest is simple and satisfying. In most cases, the addition of a few sentences to your will can complete the gift.
Please consult with your attorney before making any changes to your will.
