A gift that costs nothing during your lifetime.Greater Yellowlegs. Photo: Brad James/Audubon Photography Awards
Leaving a gift to Audubon in your will or trust, by beneficiary designation, or another form of planned gift can make a lasting difference to our work. Many gifts cost you nothing now, there is no minimum contribution, and you are not locked into a decision you make today.

Your Giving Can Go On ...
We depend on the annual, unrestricted support that you and other donors provide. Annual gifts supplement our traditional sources of revenue, and help ensure that we will meet the obligations and expenses that each year brings us.
Ever think about the long-term difference your support would make if it were available to us in perpetuity? It's possible -- if you endow your annual gift.
How? Direct a bequest or distribution from your revocable trust to our endowment, and tell us to use the annual income it generates as your ongoing unrestricted support. We can advise you on the bequest amount that, as principal in our endowment, will produce income equal to the annual gift you're contributing today.
If you believe that we will continue to make a difference long into the future, your annual support can do the same.
For more information email us, or contact us at (212) 979-3033.
