Gifts From Your Will or Trust

A Gift for the Future of the Wilderness

You don’t have to be rich to leave an enduring legacy. A bequest of any amount contributes to Friends’ ability to protect the Boundary Waters for this and future generations. A sentence or two in your will completes your bequest and it’s easy to revoke if your situation changes. Plus, your assets remain in your control during your lifetime.

You can designate a gift of a certain amount or a percentage of your estate to the Friends using the following sample language:

“I hereby give ______ (percentage, residuary share or specific amount or asset) to Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness, 2550 University Ave. W., Suite 180 S, St. Paul, MN 55114. Tax ID number: 36-3414821.”
