a gift for the future

Your passion for our refuges is a connection to something beyond yourself—one of life’s greatest joys. Now, you can pass on the beauty and wonder that you have experienced to coming generations. One of the most profound ways that you can make a difference is through legacy giving, also called planned giving.

How will you leave a legacy? We are happy to discuss your options, including potential tax or estate planning benefits, and help find the right fit for you and your family.

If you do include Coastal Refuges in your estate plans, please let us know, so that we can recognize you and express our thanks during your lifetime. 

As part of a well thought-out estate plan, your gift may also offer significant financial benefits to you and your family. Coastal Refuges will help you explore the options that may work best for you. We also recommend that you discuss any planned gift with your attorney, accountant, and/or other financial advisors.

Common ways of giving

  • Bequests
  • Real Estate
  • Stocks, bonds, mutual funds or other publicly traded securities
  • Cash or check, in a donation that supports your overall estate planning

Tax ID

You may need to know our tax ID in order to make your generous planned gift. Our federal tax ID number is 26-2009310.

Friends of the Savannah Coastal Wildlife Refuges, Inc. is a 501(c)3 organization.
