Leaving a Legacy

The Sitka Conservation Society has been fighting to protect the Tongass for over 40 years and with your support, it will continue to be a voice speaking out on behalf of the forest forever.  Legacy gifts, also know as planned gifts, are a significant way you can contribute to the future of SCS.  There are many options for making legacy gifts.  Please take a look at the brochure below for an introduction into the types of gifts you can make and follow the links to learn about the Living Wilderness Fund Endowment, Memorial, and Legacy Society.  We would be honored to work with you and you financial adviser in deciding what contribution is right for you and your family.  Please contact us if you would like more information about leaving a legacy gift to SCS.
