CREATE A LEGACY TO BENEFIT THE GOLDEN GATE NATIONAL PARKS

As we celebrate 40 years of protecting and enhancing the landscape as well as providing welcoming and engaging opportunities for recreation, we thank you—our members—for your support.  And many members, like you, have taken the opportunity to forward our work well into the future through a bequest gift. To this end, the Parks Conservancy has partnered with FreeWill to offer you a  free, safe and secure online service for you to create your will or trust. Some supporters complete their estate plan through FreeWill; others use FreeWill to get started and then consult their own estate advisers.

Ensure that your family members are taken care of, and share your philanthropic values through a legacy gift for causes that are meaningful to you.  Many Conservancy supporters have made a bequest commitment to make an impact on the future of our parklands, and their gifts are a large reason why we’re able to continue caring for the sustainability and enjoyment of your parks during this unusual time.  A legacy gift costs nothing today and will help us keep our parks healthy, vibrant and relevant for generations to come. 

If you have already included a legacy gift to Golden Gate National Parks in your estate plan, please record your gift here so we can say thank you!

When you make a planned gift to the Conservancy, you become a member of the Silver Lupine Circle—a community of park lovers who, like you, ensure these national treasures will be protected and nurtured for generations to come. You join an extraordinary group of people—hikers and history buffs, beachcombers and triathletes, volunteers and philanthropists, parents and grandparents, friends and neighbors—who care about preserving these parks as much as you do. We are grateful for our stewards for tomorrow.
