Gift and Legacy Planning
You can make a lasting contribution to the preservation of the world's rainforests by naming RAN as a beneficiary in your will, or a recipient of a portion of your estate, or by establishing a charitable trust.
RAN recommends the following language for use in wills, with four examples of bequest types.
"I hereby give, devise and bequeath to Rainforest Action Network, a non-profit corporation of the State of California, located at 425 Bush Street, Ste 300, San Francisco, CA 94108 USA:
__________% of my estate."
- the sum of $__________."
- the shares of stock in __________ Company/Corporation."
- my real property commonly known as__________."
all of the residue of my estate, including real and personal."
(preceding the above paragraph)
"In the event of the death of any of my beneficiaries (followed with percentage, specific, or residual language above)"
A variety of charitable trusts or "life income agreements" offer significant tax advantages, a regular income for you, and long-term support for RAN.
