Types of Gifts
Here are the types of non-cash gifts that donors already give to us:
- Gifts in kind – securities, real estate, stocks, bonds, shares, mutual funds, insurance, retirement or pension funds and other gifts of real property.
- Gifts by will or estate – gifts made via your will or estate planning with the Wilderness Committee named as a beneficiary.
- Named funds – like the Gwen Barlee Memorial Fund, you can name your own fund to the Wilderness Committee, in your honor or in memory of a loved one.
- Gifts held in trust – where the Wilderness Committee is a charitable beneficiary.
- Donor advised funds
- Charity gifts
- Grants, family foundations and community partnerships
Want to help right now?
- Consider divesting via a gift of securities. Transfer your stocks and mutual funds to the Wilderness Committee and we will divest them for you! Put your money to work for the wild instead.
- Consider moving your bank account out of the 5 Big Banks so that your fees, interest and investments don’t fund pipelines, mining or deforestation.

One of our donors gives by credit card and pays the 3% fee – so instead of giving $2000, he gives $2060. Thanks to his generous added contribution, we not only see the full benefit of his gift, but it is his wish that others join him in this (no matter the amount!).

While there is discussion of a future reduction in credit card fees exemption donations to charities, there has been no change to date. We continue to wait and watch in anticipation of this law to ensure every dollar goes to defending the wild!
