Gifts & Estate Planning

"We don’t inherit this earth from our parents, we borrow it from our children."
Gifts & Estate Planning

Gifts included as part of your estate can be a wonderful way to provide lasting support for the planet.  These gifts allow you to help us defend the environment.

Gifts through your will, living trust, retirement plans or other estate planning approaches will give you the comfort of knowing that you are championing a healthy earth for future generations.  You will be making a real difference for those who follow.

If you do decide to include Friends of the Earth Action in your Estate plans, here is some suggested wording you can bring to your attorney:
