Forever Wild Society

Be Part of a Society of Conservation

The Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness established the Forever Wild Society to recognize exceptionally dedicated individuals who care deeply about protecting the Boundary Waters for future generations and have expressed their commitment by making a gift to the Friends in their estate plans.

There are several ways to provide a gift to Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness that will endure beyond your lifetime. A commitment made through your will or trust, retirement plan, charitable gift annuity, life insurance policy or charitable remainder trust will entitle you to membership in Friends’ Forever Wild Society.

The Friends 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.

If you are already a Forever Wild Society member, we’d love to hear what inspired you to make such a meaningful commitment. To share your story with us, or for more information, please contact Mike Linnemann, Friends’ Development Director, at or 612-209-6262.
