Planned Giving

Protecting our future

Secure an impact on the future of the planet with a planned gift today.

Preserving the natural systems on which all life depends, depends on us.

Planned giving support ensures that EDF remains nimble today and in the future. You can give through a will or living trust, or through beneficiary designations in retirement plans, life insurance policies or donor advised funds. Many supporters also consider gifts that pay them back for life, such as charitable gift annuities.

We’ve helped thousands of EDF members like you start their plans, and we are here to help you achieve your planning goals, too.

Together, we can preserve the natural systems on which all life depends.
