Safeguard the World You Love with a Life-Income Gift

You can help us stand up for nature―and earn income for yourself―with a life-income gift today. Every acre we protect, every mile of river restored, every species brought back from the brink, begins with you. Contact us at (833) 336-7526 or, or click "Start a Conversation" below.

How It Works

  1. You irrevocably transfer cash, securities or other property to TNC.
  2. You choose whether to receive variable or fixed payments from a variety of options.
  3. TNC works with investment partners to carefully steward your gift.
  4. TNC issues scheduled payments to you or a loved one.
  5. The principal passes to TNC after the beneficiaries’ lifetimes.

How You Benefit

  • You create a reliable source of income for you or a loved one.
  • You may reduce your tax burden. If you are 50 or older, you can set up a gift and immediately receive an income tax deduction. If you are 35 or older, you can make a gift today and receive immediate tax advantages while deferring guaranteed income for the future.
  • You can accomplish your financial goals by choosing from a variety of options.
  • You have the satisfaction of making a significant gift that benefits you now and TNC later.

Quote: LaRue Pollard

Life-income gifts are gifts that give back! I receive payments every year that help me feel more financially secure as I grow older.
