Why Consider A Gift In Your Will
When you make the important decision to leave a gift to American Rivers in your will, you demonstrate your commitment to our work to protect and restore our rivers. A legacy gift shows your willingness to invest in our conservation work, and you know that your thoughtfulness and generosity now will be transformational for those who come after.
Charitable Planning Benefits
When you make a will and specify those loved ones you wish to remember as well as the charitable causes that are important to you, you ensure that your assets will be distributed according to your wishes. While many people assume that their children or attorney will remember what causes they gave to during their lifetimes and continue those gifts, there is no guarantee this will happen. The only way to make sure that the organizations whose values you share, such as American Rivers, will receive a share of your assets, is to detail your gift in writing in your will. While your gift and your will are private and entirely up to you, please remember that if you let us know that you’ve made a gift to American Rivers, it will help us plan our future river conservation work.
Putting Your Loved Ones And Favorite Causes First
We concur — your family comes first. But, after you take care of family members, you could designate a percentage of your estate to American Rivers. Your gift could go a long way toward the protection and restoration of rivers.
