Leave a Legacy

We all have something to share. Legacy gifts reflect the values you feel are important for those who follow you. Most of us cannot make major gifts during our lifetime, but at our death, even a small bequest can have a substantial impact and provide long-term benefits to the Alliance. When you arrange a legacy gift to the Ice Age Trail Alliance, you help  ensure the Ice Age Trail will be here for future generations.

Gifts by Bequest

Make a charitable bequest as part of your estate planning; simply include language in your will or trust.

Retirement Plan Beneficiary

Your hard-earned retirement assets will make the work of the Alliance possible for years to come. Naming the Ice Age Trail Alliance as a beneficiary of your retirement assets may also result in significant tax savings.

Gifts that Produce Income

Make a gift today and receive income for life. A charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust lets you leave a meaningful gift to the Ice Age Trail Alliance, receive income from the assets, and realize potentially significant tax benefits.

Other Giving Options

There are more opportunities to leave a legacy to the Ice Age Trail, including gifts of stocks and bonds, real estate, or a life insurance policy. Speak with your financial advisor to discuss additional giving options.

The Burr Oak Society: Acknowledges your gift

Acknowledging your contribution to the long-term vision for the Trail and the Alliance is important. That’s why, when you commit to support the Ice Age Trail Alliance through your estate plans, you are invited to become a member of the Burr Oak Legacy Society.

Burr Oak Society members are recognized in Mammoth Tales and receive an invitation to the Annual Ray Zillmer-Henry Reuss Memorial Dinner and hike, which is held each fall.

So we can thank you, and invite you to the Burr Oak Legacy Society, inform Sarah Driscoll, Philanthropy Manager, of your plans (sarahd@iceagetrail.org or (800) 227-0046).
