Bequests and other estate gifts have provided vital support for RAN's mission throughout its history. For 30 years, RAN has campaigned to preserve the rainforests, protect the climate and uphold human rights. We understand that protecting the planet does not happen overnight. Every day, new threats arise, and when old growth forests are destroyed, public lands are razed for fossil fuels, and Indigenous communities are displaced, there is no way to undo the damage. The devastating effects of corporate greed on our planet will be felt by generations, and some ecosystems may never recover. Making a gift to RAN through your estate is a powerful way to help protect our planet for future generations, no matter what threats arise.
RAN is committed to doing whatever it takes to protect the planet — and with your support, we will continue to get results.
Bequests to Rainforest Action Network are generally either for a specific sum of for the residue, or a percentage of the residue, of the estate. The following are some examples:
1) all the residue of my estate.
2) % of the residue of my estate.
