Make a Gift of Securities

A gift of stock allows you to make a big impact while employing prudent tax strategies by both receiving a charitable tax deduction and reducing your taxable income. Please contact us for DTC instructions.
Give through Your Retirement Plan
Leaving all or part of your retirement plan to Nature and Culture allows you to support our critical conservation actions while reducing tax burdens.
Make a gift from your required minimum distributions (RMD). Satisfy your required minimum distribution while also reducing your taxable income.
Make Nature and Culture the beneficiary of your Qualified Retirement Plan. Secure your legacy while receiving an estate tax charitable deduction.
Give through Your Life Insurance
Designating Nature and Culture as the beneficiary of your life insurance policy will help conservation efforts while offering you significant tax benefits.
Give through Your Donor Advised Fund or Charitable Trust
There are several financial vehicles that can provide income for you or a loved one during your lifetime, creating significant tax deductions while providing critical resources to Nature and Culture. Deciding what vehicle to use will depend on your personal needs and financial objectives.
These include charitable remainder unitrusts and charitable remainder annuity trusts as well as charitable lead trusts and charitable gift annuities. Please consult your financial adviser about the appropriateness of these planning tools.
