Legacy Gifts and Gift Planning
The WWF Legacy Circle
Giving the Most Valuable Gift to Nature: Security
"We seek to be the voice for those creatures who have no voice. We speak for their future."
These words from the WWF Vision are what the Legacy Circle is all about -- leaving a gift that will speak for the future of nature.
Our defenseless species and precious landscapes don't have the ability to plan for their own future security. They can't set up retirement plans, savings accounts or living trusts to ensure they will be protected for generations to come. But now, through the WWF Legacy Circle, you can do this for them.
When you make a special Legacy Circle gift by including WWF in your will or other estate plan, or by setting up a charitable gift annuity, you are giving our wildlife a voice for the future. You are giving WWF the power to always be there, speaking up for nature and ensuring its security, now and for generations to come.
