Planning a gift means planning a future, built on science, that protects the essential lands and resources sustaining us all.


Protecting our most precious lands, species, and resources is a legacy worth fighting for. Your planned gift helps secure a future of science-driven conservation at Archbold for generations to come.

A planned gift is a giving option which allows donors to give in a lasting and meaningful way, leaving a legacy for you and your family and for the precious plants, animals, and resources protected through Archbold’s work. A planned gift allows you to be involved in planning how your gift will be used in the future. Donors may also be afforded tax benefits for planned gifts.

Types of Planned Gifts

We encourage you to work with your personal financial planners to create a gift plan best suited for you.

From bequests to IRA distributions, you can shape your planned gift to Archbold in the way that best suits you. Your gift may be a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or the remainder after all other provisions are specified.
