Your Legacy for Wildlife
BUILD A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE FOR WILDLIFE WITH A PLANNED GIFT
Planned gifts ensure that local wildlife will receive care for years to come. People of every age and income level can make a planned gift to ensure that wildlife in Western North Carolina are cared for when needed. Planned giving allows you to make arrangements to have Appalachian Wild, and the wildlife we care for, benefit from some of your assets, now or in the future while maximizing financial and tax benefits to you and your family.
One of the most direct ways to plan for helping wildlife is to make a bequest in your will. There are many options for this kind of support, including a specific bequest of money or assets, designating a percentage of the total value of the estate, or designating a residual bequest that directs Appalachian Wild to receive the remainder of the estate after expenses and other bequests have been made.
Please consult with your attorney or estate-planning professional before deciding on what type of gift to make. Thank you for considering a legacy gift for wildlife!

"My husband and I have always loved watching and photographing wildlife. We have known many compassionate people who have given so much of themselves to help orphaned and injured wildlife. As someone who has volunteered with a wildlife rehabilitator, I know how much it costs to properly care for the animals. We are pleased to be able to include this organization in our estate planning." Judy Pierce
