Legacy Gifts

Some of the most wondrous places on Earth are here for us to enjoy today because of past generations’ commitments to help protect the natural world. Legacy gifts like yours allow us to plan ahead and work more efficiently at a larger scale—meaning even better results for the lands and waters on which we all depend. Thank you for your incredible commitment to The Nature Conservancy.

Below we’ve shared some messages from TNC staff about why they’re thankful for you! But we’d also love to hear from you: What inspires your love for nature? Please share your story with us!

Messages of Gratitude to Legacy Club members from TNC Staff

  • “Thank you to our Legacy Club members for allowing us to be bold! You provide us with the stability we need to work on big problems rather than only chasing after things we can do quickly and easily. There are so many choices about the legacy you want to leave after you’re gone—I’m humbled and honored that so many people have put their faith in the Conservancy. That faith inspired me to become a Legacy Club member myself.”
    Jon Fisher, Volunteer and Former Senior Conservation Scientist
  • “I am always in awe of the incredible dedication and commitment of our Legacy Club members. ‘Thank you’ feels insufficient to express my gratitude for what you do for nature.”
    Anna Simmonds, Director of Bequests and Annuities
  • “Thank you for everything you do. Your vision for a better world and your deep generosity make the work we do possible and ensure the Conservancy will have resources to continue the conservation legacy we have built together.”
    Bryan Piazza, Louisiana Director of Science
