Bequests

BEQUESTS

A GIFT IN WILL IS A BEQUEST TO WILDLANDS LEAGUE ON BEHALF OF YOURSELF OR IN MEMORY OF SOMEONE IMPORTANT TO YOU. IT CAN BE MADE IN TWO WAYS:

RESIDUAL BEQUEST

Wildlands League receives a percentage of the remainder or residue of your estate after other specific legacies have been fulfilled. This gift will be used where it’s needed most. Residual Bequests are preferred by many people, as it keeps in line with inflation and does not lose value over time. See suggested language.

SPECIFIC BEQUEST

Wildlands League receives a specific dollar amount or a gift in kind (collections, art, books, jewelry, and so on). Gifts in kind will be sold and proceeds will be used to safeguard nature where it’s needed most. See suggested language.
