Planned Giving

Make a big impact with a future gift.

A bequ-est may be particularly attractive as a gift option if you are unable to make a current (outright) gift, but would like to contribute to The Nature of Wildworks in a meaningful way. By including The Nature of Wildworks in your will or estate plan, you make an investment in our future and our mission to connect people with wildlife to inspire responsibility and respect for the world we share.

Bequests can take several forms such as:

  • Specific bequest - a certain amount of cash, securities, or property.

  • General bequest - property that is similar to all other items distributed, usually cash.

  • Percentage bequest - a stated percentage of the donor's estate.

  • Residual bequest - all or a portion of what remains of the estate after specific and general bequests are distributed.

Bequests help both nonprofits and donors. Donors often wish to leave money to their favorite causes, and they and their heirs may receive considerable tax benefits in the process.

When you include The Nature of Wildworks in your estate plans, your generosity ensures that more wildlife in need continue to get the chance to live the long happy lives they deserve, and to make sure we can continue the rest of our mission- to gain public understanding of our wild neighbors through education!

Please contact us to let us know your plans so we can add you to our Phoenix Legacy Circle. 559-692-9980 or
