Planned Giving and Estates
Whether is was when you were growing up, last year, or yesterday, a memory of being outdoors can stay with you a lifetime.
We invite you to join a group of thoughtful donors whose estate gifts ensure others will have the opportunity to enjoy the San Diego River and the outdoors. That wildlife and the River will have a healthier future and that programs you value will continue on.
You can have impact that will last for generations. It can be as easy as designating The San Diego River Park Foundation as a beneficiary in your will. You can also direct these funds for specific purposes such as open space acquisition, Discovery Center, or youth education. You can also direct your gift for general purposes to give The San Diego River Park Foundation the greatest flexibility.
Your commitment through a charitable planned or estate gift benefitting the San Diego River Park Foundation will qualify you for membership in the San Diego River Park Legacy Society. Of course, if you prefer as many do, your commitment can remain anonymous.
Society members will be recognized in the San Diego River Discovery Center at Grant Park when it opens (scheduled for 2017) and in our annual report, plus all benefits as a Director Circle Member.
If you are interested in meeting to discuss your estate plan intentions and opportunities, please contact our President and CEO,
Rob Hutsel, (619) 297-7380 x 108 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For legal or tax advice, please consult an attorney.
