Legacy Giving

You can ensure your values and intentions live on to benefit future generations by including MCL in your will or estate plans.

Marin Conservation League has maintained 90 years of uninterrupted impact in our community because of the strength and dedication of our long-term members and supporters. We are committed to preserving, protecting, and enhancing the natural assets of Marin in a changing world for generations to come.

If you share our commitment and vision for the future, we invite you to leave your legacy and include Marin Conservation League in your planned giving. Your investment will ensure that future generations in our community will benefit from Marin Conservation League's work to ensure an ecologically diverse and resilient natural environment that is valued and cared for by a thriving, engaged community.


Leaving a Legacy

Individuals who wish to be partners in the future of our mission can make provisions for MCL in their estate plans – either by will, trust, life-income gift or other planned giving arrangement.
Enrolling is easy. Simply advise MCL that a testamentary provision has been made. The size of the gift need not be disclosed. Legacy gifts can take many forms:

  • Bequests in wills or living trusts;
  • Life income gifts through a charitable remainder trust, pooled income fund or gift annuity;
  • Retirement plan beneficiary designation; or
  • Life insurance beneficiary designation or retirement assesses.

We encourage you to contact your tax advisor, financial advisor, or attorney when making your plans. Everyone, regardless of income or whether you have dependents, should have a will. There are free resources you can access to make your will. Freewill.com is a great example.

Legacy of the Land Alliance

As a thank you for your future investment in our work, donors who have notified us of their deferred gift arrangement will become members of our Legacy of the Land Alliance. Our Legacy of the Land Alliance members are the supporters of tomorrow that make this most thoughtful and personal gift.

We understand that some people may wish to remain anonymous. Unless you choose to be anonymous, we will plan to list your name in our annual report and in the Legacy of the Land Alliance Honor Roll that will be displayed in annual report. We will also send you our Legacy of the Land Alliance membership lapel pin that you can proudly wear to signal your deep and personal commitment to MCLs’ mission and vision.

For more information, please reach out to Executive Director Kate Shilvock at kate@marinconservationleague.org

With your support, we’ll ensure the environment is a top priority in local decision-making.
