Planned Giving

A gift that gives back to the Adirondacks... forever.

All estate gifts to the Adirondack Council continue to grow as part of the Council Forever Wild Fund. This Board-directed fund provides independence and flexibility to the Council’s protection efforts serving as an action fund that allows the Council to move immediately, without having to seek donations before committing to action. It is also a long-term fund that gives the organization stability and flexibility in planning for the future of the Adirondack Park.

Gifts to the Adirondack Council through your will are not subject to federal estate and the inheritance taxes of most states. Such gifts, or bequests, can take different forms.
