Through your will or revocable living trust, you can specify that a portion of your assets come to us after your lifetime and which Sierra Fund beneficiary, project or initiative you would like to support.
After your lifetime the asset(s) will pass to us and will not be included in your estate for federal tax purposes. However, you cannot claim an income tax charitable deduction when you make a bequest because the gift is revocable.
By including The Sierra Fund in your will or estate plan, you are helping to preserve the Sierra Nevada for future generations. Bequests help The Sierra Fund purchase threatened habitats and manage preserves that provide rare plants and animals with the lands and waters they need to survive.
