Leave a Legacy

Field of blue dicks with sunlight and trees

Your values, your environment, your legacy – live the way you want to be remembered.

Legacy gifts to Cal-IPC represent an enduring commitment to protecting California’s wildlands for generations to come. Legacy gifts established today — such as a charitable bequest in your will, retirement plan, or trust — will ensure that our work protecting California’s environment will stay strong tomorrow.

No matter the size of your estate, we can work with you and your professional advisors to help you determine the most appropriate gift for your personal and financial goals.  See the links below for information on the various ways you can leave a legacy gift. Donations may be made to honor the memory of a family member, friend, or colleague.

Please let us know if you have already included Cal-IPC in your estate plans by using our Legacy Society Form. For assistance, contact Claire F. Meyler, Communications and Development Manager, at cmeyler@cal-ipc.org or 510-843-3902 x310.
