  • How will my Memorial or Special Occasion gift be used?

  • How will the person I’m honoring or their loved one be notified?

    There are several ways we will communicate with you and the person you honor about your Memorial or Special Occasion gift:

    ·       When you make your donation, you will be asked to provide a mailing address and optional email address for the person you are honoring or their loved one you wish to notify. 

    ·       If you choose to send an e-card on the donation form, you can also choose the specific date on which it will be sent. 

    ·       The person you designate will also be notified of your thoughtful gift by mail within two to three weeks, whether or not you choose to send an e-card.

    ·       You will also receive an email and letter confirming and acknowledgement your donation for your own records.  

  • How are Memorial and Special Occasion gifts different than a Gift Membership?

    Memorial and Special Occasion gifts only include one-time notification of your generous gift to the recipient or loved one you designate.  Gift Memberships come with a year of membership benefits, including Nature Conservancy magazine, for your designated recipient.
