Bequests ... Your Gift to the Future

Will future generations see the open space in our area as we see it? Will our children's children find the solitude, serenity and joy 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:

Specific Bequest: A specific sum of cash or property.

Percentage Bequest: A percentage of your entire estate, or the balance remaining after making specific bequests.

Remainder Bequest: 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

"I 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

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.
