PLANNED GIVING AND ESTATE PLANNING

If you share our vision of partnering with communities across Oregon to conserve, enhance and restore the physical and ecological values of Oregon’s greatest wetlands, you can make conservation of these lands a part of your own legacy by making a planned gift to TWC. A planned gift will allow you to maximize the financial rewards of your philanthropy as these gifts are structured to help you realize the full range of the tax and income incentives provided by law to encourage charitable giving. A planned gift is a great way to ensure that future generations will value Oregon’s wetlands.

Your planning today helps ensure that Oregon wetlands will be protected for future generations. We strongly recommend that you consult with your attorney, accountant and/or financial advisor in evaluating which options might be appropriate for you.

Support The Wetlands Conservancy and retain control of your assets during your lifetime. Create a legacy that reflects your values by making a bequest. A bequest is one of the simplest ways to support TWC. These thoughtful gifts ensure that the Conservancy can continue our critical work to protect the lands you care about for future generations.

Securities

Donating stocks, bonds and mutual funds directly provides an income tax deduction for the full value of the stock while avoiding capital gains taxes. TWC will sell your stock and put the proceeds towards our land conservation, wetland restoration and stewardship programs. If you are planning a gift of stock, please contact the Wetlands Conservancy office by phone for assistance— and to make sure we have the information we need to thank you for the gift!

Donate residential, commercial or undeveloped real estate and provide support for conservation while saving on taxes and reducing responsibilities associated with property ownership.
