Gifts in Will
Remember nature with a gift in your Will, name Wildlands League as a beneficiary and make a lasting contribution to the planet. You can take care of your family first and still take care of nature with a give in will to Wildlands League. Give a percentage or residual that keeps in line with inflation and does not lose value over time.
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:
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.
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.
