Legacy Giving

Leave a legacy that will touch the lives of thousands with the gift of clean water and wilderness

Legacy and Estate planning

When you include a gift to Friends of the Boundary Waters in your will, you become a crucial part of our mission to protect and conserve this unique ecosystem.

Planned giving allows you to make a lasting impact on the future of the Boundary Waters through your will or trust, retirement plan, or charitable gift annuity. Your commitment ensures that future generations can continue to experience the unspoiled wilderness, crystal-clear lakes, and abundant wildlife that make the Boundary Waters a natural treasure. Join us in creating a legacy that will resonate through time.

We can help you choose a legacy gift that will meet both your personal and philanthropic goals. Many of these gifts can provide significant tax and financial advantages to you and your loved ones.
