Your gift: easy, lasting, powerful

Clean water to drink and clean air to breathe; healthy lakes and rivers that are safe for swimming and fishing; preserved parks and wild forests that offer residents of all ages places to experience nature’s beauty and wonder; clean sources of energy that don’t pollute and never run out — all this and more is, or should be, the heritage we leave to future generations.

Yet the forces that threaten our environment won’t go away any time soon. With your help, neither will we.


We would consider it an honor to be remembered in your will.

Making a charitable bequest is simple and satisfying. In most cases, the addition of a few sentences to your will can complete the gift.

Please consult with your attorney before making any changes to your will.
