Giving through your will

Join the many wildlife guardian supporters who have chosen to leave a gift to WildCare in their wills or trusts so they can safeguard our wild neighbors and our shared environment for future generations.

How it works:

By including a bequest provision in your will or revocable trust, you can leave a specific amount, a percentage of your estate, or specific assets such as stocks, real estate, or property to WildCare, either as a primary or contingent beneficiary.

With a bequest,

  • you retain control of your assets during your lifetime
  • you can also choose to restrict the use of your bequest to a specific program or to allow the use for general purposes, permitting WildCare to use the funds for top programmatic priorities, and
  • you can change your mind or modify your gift at any time, not matter the circumstance.

Remember that your gift is tax deductible, and usually exempt from state inheritance taxes, which means you gift will go further for wildlife!
