we have found in the quiet place we have now?
How you can help
A gift to RCLC is the simplest form of giving from your estate. There
are several types of charitable bequests by will or beneficiary
designation. For example:
A specific sum of cash or property.
A percentage of your entire estate, or the balance remaining after making specific bequests.
Remaining principal after a survivor has had a period of life income.
Life Insurance Bequest:
A change of beneficiary or outright donation of a policy.
Example of a bequest
hereby give and bequeath to the Redwood Coast Land Conservancy (or
any successor organization), a non-profit organization incorporated
under the laws of the State of California, with a principal address
at P.O. Box 1511, Gualala, CA, 95445, ___percent of my estate, (or)
the sum of ___dollars, (or) the following assets___________."
Other options for charitable giving offer important benefits such as tax
deductions, avoidance of capital gains taxes, income for life or
a term, and reduced probate expense. RCLC will work with you, your
lawyer, or your estate planner to develop a planned giving trust
to fulfill your requirements.
