Gifts to NatureBridge represent an enduring commitment to the next generation and assure a future for environmental education and stewardship. Legacy gifts shared today make a difference for tomorrow. We hope you will consider joining The 1971 Society.
We gratefully accept many types of deferred or legacy gifts.
NatureBridge is dedicated to connecting young people to the wonder and science of the natural world, igniting self-discovery and inspiring stewardship of our planet. From its founding in 1971, NatureBridge has been composed of leaders, teachers, scientists, students and donors who believe passionately in the inherent long-term vision of our mission. The 1971 Society is more than an acknowledgment of our 50+ years opening doors to nature, science, education and awe; it is a way to honor those who have demonstrated this long-term commitment to environmental education in support of the future well-being of our planet.
NatureBridge would appreciate the opportunity to honor donors who include the organization in their estate plans and/or as a beneficiary of their trusts, plans or policies.
We are happy to customize recognition for donors with documented legacy and deferred gifts. Opportunities may include testimonials, listing in special donor publications and membership in planned giving circles. Donors may also choose to be anonymous.
Sharing appropriate documentation of revocable gifts with NatureBridge does not imply a binding agreement. It does, however, allow NatureBridge to steward donors and understand donor intentions during their lifetime. Acknowledgement of supporters (if not an anonymous gift) also inspires others to give, therefore multiplying the impact of a donation and of the donors’ legacy.
If you would like to learn more about joining The 1971 Society, please contact Aaron Rich, Chief Development Officer at email@example.com or 415-992-4761. We will also ask you to fill out this Declaration of Support form.
Thank you for your support of our mission to connect young people to the wonder and science of the natural world, igniting self-discovery and inspiring stewardship of the planet. Legacy gifts help build the next generation of environmental stewards that understands, celebrates and protects the natural world.
Donors are advised to consult their legal, financial or tax professional when gift planning.
More than ever, our planet needs informed and passionate stewards. NatureBridge programs help meet this critical need. That is why I am a legacy donor—I believe that NatureBridge will play a vital role in educating and inspiring environmental stewards for generations to come.Tracy Thompson
