Make plans today to protect our conservation future

Leaving a gift to Audubon in your will or trust, by beneficiary designation, or another form of planned gift can make a lasting difference to our work. Many gifts cost you nothing now, there is no minimum contribution, and you are not locked into a decision you make today.

Tip of the Day

The balance remaining in your retirement plan after your death is subject not only to federal estate tax, but also to income tax – and, if you name a grandchild as beneficiary, to the generation-skipping tax. The result can be that only 20 to 25 cents on the dollar may be left for your family.

Why give so much of your hard-earned retirement assets to the government when you can give them to Audubon instead?

Direct the balance of your plan to Audubon, and use other assets – not subject to all the taxes applied to retirement assets – to make gifts to your family.

Recent IRS regulations make it easier to make Audubon a beneficiary.
