Create 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.


Begin your legacy with us

To help you get started on your plans and legacy, you can use FreeWill, an online tool that guides you through the process of creating a legally valid will or trust. It’s easy to use, accessible online and can be completed in 20 minutes. You can use this resource on its own, or use it to document your wishes before finalizing your plans with an attorney.

Have you already included a gift in your will or trust? Please fill out this form to let us know! We would love to thank you for your generosity.


Non-probate assests

Do you have an IRA, 401(k), life-insurance policy, or any other assets not included in your will? If so, these are called non-probate assets and you must plan your beneficiaries for them separately. Use this online tool to make your plans and designate us as a beneficiary of one or more of these assets.


Contribute to the Cal-IPC Endowment

A charitable bequest to Cal-IPC’s Wildland Stewardship Endowment at the Marin Community Center will live on forever, providing a stable foundation for our future.  Contact Donor Relations Manager Claire F. Meyler for more information.
