Legacy Gifts

Pass on your passion for Idaho through a bequest of money, securities or personal property.

Leave a Lasting Gift for the Idaho You Love

Legacy gifts ensure the Idaho Conservation League’s future by building the ICL Endowment Trust Fund. The principle of this fund is held in perpetuity. The interest generated each year by the fund finances our work and keeps us Idaho’s leading voice for conservation.

Gifts Through Your Will

Bequests are as simple as including the following language in your will:

Unconditional bequest:

“I hereby bequeath to the Idaho Conservation League, a nonprofit charitable conservation organization with headquarters at 710 N. 6th Street, Boise, Idaho, the sum of $_____ to be used for the Idaho Conservation League Endowment Trust Fund.”

Conditional bequest:

“I hereby bequeath to the Idaho Conservation League, a nonprofit charitable conservation organization with headquarters at 710 N. 6th Street, Boise, Idaho, the sum of $____ to be used for the specific purpose of _______; however, if in any event the specific purpose should no longer be necessary or appropriate, I give the Board of Directors the authority to use the sum of money however it deems best.”

Residue bequest:

“I hereby bequeath to the Idaho Conservation League, a nonprofit charitable conservation organization with headquarters at 710 N. 6th Street, Boise, Idaho, after specific bequests have been fulfilled, all of the rest and remainder portions of my estate and property, real and personal, to be placed in the Idaho Conservation League Endowment Trust Fund.”

To bequeath securities and personal property, simply substitute in place of “the sum of $____” in your will, both 1) the name of the securities or of the personal property, and 2) the number of shares or other descriptors (such as real estate address, artist’s name, serial numbers and so on). Appreciated securities bring even greater benefit by dramatically reducing the capital gains taxes to you and your estate.

Other Gift Options

Through guided estate planning, you and your financial advisors can create a life-income gift that provides estate tax benefits to you and your family, while supporting the future of Idaho’s natural resources.

For information on planned giving options that include income for life, please contact us about Charitable Remainder Trusts and Charitable Gift Annuities.

Legacy Gifts Can Be Complex

Together we can create a powerful and enduring voice for protecting what you love about Idaho.

Speaking with reputable financial or legal advisors is essential to help you decide which gift is best for you and your family. Please contact the Idaho Conservation League for a confidential discussion of your legacy giving options.
