Thank you for your support.


Your donation to Cal-IPC helps us provide educational resources, advocate on behalf of wildlands protection, work with partners throughout the state to monitor and manage invasive plants, and so much more! Any amount makes a difference.

Gifts of stock

Donating stocks allows you to avoid the capital gains tax and, if you itemize deductions, you can also take a charitable deduction for the entire donation amount. We’ve invested in this secure online tool that enables you to donate your appreciated assets in 10 minutes.

Give from your IRA

If you are 70.5 or older and have a traditional IRA, you can use this secure online tool to make a donation from your IRA account. IRA gifts are generally not recognized as taxable income and if you must take a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) this year, giving from your IRA is a compassionate way to fulfill it.

Using this online tool, you can learn more and fill out the forms from your IRA custodian in just a few minutes, or print out the forms to fill them out offline.

Support Cal-IPC through your Donor Advised Fund

Donor-Advised Funds (DAFs) are investment accounts for the sole purpose of supporting charitable organizations. If you have a DAF, you can use FreeWill’s DAF tool.

FreeWill’s DAF tool empowers you to make a targeted impact by recommending how you’d like your grant to be allocated, communicating your wishes to Cal-IPC, sharing the details of your DAF grant, and navigating to your DAF provider. It’s also a great way to ensure our organization has consistent financial support while saving cash for immediate needs.

We now accept Crypto currency

We now accept donations of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies! This gives us one more way to fund our work and can provide you with extra tax benefits.

Ask your organization to sponsor the Symposium

Sponsoring the Symposium offers a unique opportunity for an organization to present its work to the Cal-IPC community, while providing vital funds to produce the event and help us share the latest in land management.

Create a Legacy

Create a living will or trust to take care of your family and support your passion. We’ve made it easy! Cal-IPC is partnering with FreeWill to provide a simple and secure way to leave a legacy.
