An Enduring Purpose Gift
A unique opportunity to help sustain the Refuge you love.
Leave a legacy...
You've spent a lifetime supporting organizations and causes that reflect your values. So why not consider including an enduring purpose gift as part of your overall financial or estate plan?
Make the world a better place.
By making an enduring purpose gift to Friends of Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge, you create a legacy that protects a place you value for future generations. An enduring purpose gift gives you the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy - making the world a better place.
Why a will?
Having a will offers numerous advantages such as:
The assets committed through a bequest can be cash, securities, real property, or other valuables. In the case of cash, the bequest can be for a specified amount, or a specified percentage after all expenses and any other bequests are covered. No bequest is too small.
Many people wish to keep their estate plans and wills private. The Friends of Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge understand this and will respect your wishes and your right to privacy.
Your Values and the Refuge's Future
It ultimately comes down to your values - to consideration of the legacy you leave behind from your time on this earth. It feels good to support things you care about. Your decision to do that - to give back - reflects an important value you pass on to future generations.
You can be an inspiration.
We invite you to help ensure that the Refuge you love remains healthy and thrives. Help protect its natural habitats and the plants and animals that live there. Help teach more children about the environment and conservation. Help preserve the special place that is the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge Complex.
