Legacy Giving

There are many vehicles that allow you to provide for your loved ones and make a planned gift to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, including:

  • Wills and Living Trusts 
  • Gifts of Stock or Securities
  • Life Insurance Policies
  • Bank and Investment Accounts
  • Retirement Plans
  • Donor Advised Funds

When you inform us of your planned giving intentions, you become a member of our Legacy Society, allowing us to recognize you appropriately for your generosity and dedication to wild gorilla conservation in Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

A planned gift to the Fossey Fund may allow you to make a larger gift than you thought possible, reduce your income tax liability, avoid capital gains taxes, and/or leave a lasting legacy without giving up assets today. This information is not intended as tax or legal advice and we recommend that you consult with your legal and financial advisors to learn about the best giving options for you given your unique circumstances.

To inform us of a planned gift or to learn more about building your legacy of conservation, please contact Katherine Cadwallader at kcadwallader@gorillafund.org or 404.624.5920
