Make plans today to protect our conservation future

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.










Tip of the Day

Why Is Endowment Important?
(You Already Ask Me For a Gift Every Year...)

When we receive your bequest or life insurance benefits, or when a life-income gift matures, we place the proceeds in our endowment unless you have directed us otherwise. The endowment is our savings account, and its long-term growth makes us stronger. We count on the income it returns every year to help us reach institutional goals that we could not attain using just our regular sources of revenue. In addition, a healthy endowment gives us financial muscle to meet the challenges and opportunities that the future will bring.

Your annual support helps us in a different way: it allows us to meet today’s mission and expenses.

We'll be happy to tell you more about how both endowment and annual giving help us succeed, today and in the future.
