Testamentary Gifts

One estate asset can benefit both The Nature Conservancy and your heirs through a testamentary life-income gift.

How it works:
  1. You write a will or revocable trust directing a bequest to The Nature Conservancy.
  2. You provide that the bequest first create a life-income gift benefiting your heirs.
  3. After their income interest terminates, the remaining balance in the gift passes to The Nature Conservancy.
