For nearly 120 years, Audubon has been the planet’s leading voice in protecting birds and their habitats. Bequests and estate gifts are essential to fuel our work.
Now through December 2022, we are leveraging a generous $1 million bequest to inspire others to leave a lasting legacy. By joining this group of committed supporters, you can strengthen today’s efforts in saving the birds of tomorrow.
With your legacy commitment for our future, Audubon California will allocate 10% of your planned gift value, up to $10,000, from the generous $1 million bequest for immediate use.
If you have ever thought about creating your estate plans to include Audubon – now is the time to act.
If you have already included Audubon or Audubon California in your plans, please notify us so we can ensure your gift will qualify.
The Audubon California Legacy Challenge has already generated nearly $2 million in bequest pledges. With your help, we can reach our goal of $10 million by December 31, 2022.
