LEGACY GIVING

You can leave a Legacy for a Greener Future with a gift through your will, life insurance, appreciated securities or other assets. 

Legacy giving, also known as planned giving, has significant tax advantages. For instance, 100% of a bequest is credited as a charitable donation, reducing the amount of taxes owed by your estate.

Your legacy gift will have a significant impact by allowing BurlingtonGreen the flexibility to determine how your gift can best be used to protect our environment.  Your gift can also be directed to a specific area of need, such as Youth, Action, Awareness, Advocacy, or our Climate mitigation work. 

Please have your estate advisor contact us if you wish to direct your gift to any other specific purpose to ensure BG can accept the gift. Please also contact us about establishing a named fund, or making a gift of appreciated securities, life insurance or other non-cash assets.

**Be sure to consult with your legal advisor in making any changes to your will, or creating a new will.**
