Planned Giving

Make a Lasting Impact on the Environment

Leave a gift in your will, trust or beneficiary designation. A simple gift in your will can help us keep the environment healthy and fight the greatest challenge of our generation, climate change. After all, there is only this one Earth and it’s our duty to leave it better than we found it for our future generations.

Sign Your Name, Protect the Future

Supporters like you frequently tell us, “I wish I could do more.”

The good news is, there’s an easy way to do more. Simply sign your name to leave a gift beyond your lifetime. Include us as a beneficiary of any of these types of accounts:

  • Retirement Accounts
  • Life Insurance Policies
  • Bank or Brokerage Accounts
  • Certificate of Deposits
  • Donor Advised Funds

It’s easy to do. Check your account statement for the phone number and website of your account administrator.

Request or download a beneficiary designation form. Designate us as a partial, contingent or sole beneficiary of your account. Then, simply sign and return the form to your plan administrator and keep a copy for your files.

A Gift that Costs You Nothing Now

One of the most popular ways to create a lasting legacy for the environment is by leaving a gift to us in your will or trust.

The gift costs you nothing now but allows you to make a significant impact on the future. You can take care of family first and name us to receive a specific amount or percentage of your estate. Or, consider naming us as a contingent beneficiary, so we’re next in line after loved ones. Simply discuss your wishes with your attorney and provide our legal name and tax identification number:

League of Conservation Voters
Tax ID# 52-1733698
