We work hard to keep our Legacy Club members informed about our work both locally and globally through events, trips and regular communications. Many members from this special group joined other local supporters here at the Worldwide Office to hear Director of Science Jennifer Molnar discuss how we are working collaboratively around the world assessing how nature benefits people. She was joined by Elizabeth Gray, who updated the audience on what is happening in their region in and around Washington, D.C.
Making a Legacy Gift
Many legacy supporters have chosen to pass on their values and help build the long-term financial strength of The Nature Conservancy through a charitable bequest. Making a legacy gift through your will or revocable trust today can help us continue our groundbreaking work to protect critical resources on a global scale tomorrow. If you have considered making a gift through your estate to support nature in the future but would like more information, you can let us know and one of our team members will contact you.

Benefits of Giving Through Your Estate Plan
- Perpetuate your values. Your will or trust allows you to create a bequest that reflects the values you hold dear.
- Retain control of your assets during your lifetime. You can modify your gift if your circumstances change.
- Take advantage of tax laws that help preserve your estate assets. A well-designed plan can result in your estate paying less tax, allowing you to leave more for your beneficiaries.
Ways to Give Through Your Estate Plan
It’s easy—you can name the Conservancy as a beneficiary of specific assets, a portion of your estate or your residual estate. The following assets provide an easy and tax-efficient way to make a bequest and the flexibility to be modified if your circumstances change:
- Retirement plan such as an IRA, 401(k) or 403(b)
- Life insurance policy
- Financial accounts such as a bank or brokerage account or a certificate of deposit (CD)
Be sure to use the correct legal language when including the Conservancy in your will or estate plan.
If you wish to name The Nature Conservancy in your will or estate plan, we should be named as:
