Leave a Legacy: Planned Gifts to Audubon Alaska

Audubon Alaska offers our donors several simple, flexible, tax-advantaged options for combining philanthropy and financial planning.

Help protect birds for future generations by including Audubon Alaska in your will, estate, or retirement planning. Leaving a gift to Audubon Alaska 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, with no minimum contribution, and you are not locked into a decision you make today.

There are many ways you can support Audubon’s work and invest in Alaska’s birds, other wildlife, and habitats, including:

  • Include a bequest to Audubon Alaska in your will.
  • Name Audubon Alaska as a beneficiary of your IRA or other qualified retirement plan.
  • Make a charitable gift annuity, which gives you guaranteed income for life in exchange for your current gift of cash or stocks.
  • Name Audubon Alaska as a beneficiary or partial beneficiary of a life insurance policy that has outlasted it original purpose.

Bequests have been an important source of support for Audubon since the beginning of our movement. We urge you to have your will prepared by an attorney who is knowledgeable in estate planning and who is familiar with the laws of the state in which you reside. If your will is already prepared, you may not have to rewrite the document to include Audubon Alaska; your attorney may be able to simply add an amendment, called a codicil.

Please share the following paragraph with your attorney to make sure that your bequest is applied to our work in Alaska:

“I bequeath ___% of my residuary estate (or $____) to the National Audubon Society, Inc. (“Audubon”), a not-for-profit organization, with its principal office located at 225 Varick Street, 7th Floor, New York, NY, 10014. This bequest shall be applied to Audubon’s Alaska state office (known as “Audubon Alaska”) for its conservation programs.” Tax ID Number: 13-1624102.
