WCS 125th Anniversary
Legacy Challenge

For a limited time, when you include in your estate plan a gift to the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), you qualify to be a part of the WCS 125th Anniversary Legacy Challenge that allows you to have an impact today while sustaining WCS’s future.

As of January 1, 2021, we have a pool of $400,000 in matching funds that are available on a first come, first served basis to any individual who documents a planned gift to WCS. The WCS Legacy Challenge program will end either on December 31, 2022, or when the matching funds have been depleted, whichever comes first.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Make a gift to WCS in your will or trust, name us as a beneficiary of your retirement plan or life insurance policy, or make another planned gift to WCS.
  2. Notify us of your gift by filling out our Gift Confirmation Form using the tools below.
  3. Matching funds equal to 10% of your gift’s value (up to $25,000) will then be used to make a gift to WCS in your honor today.

Including WCS in your estate plan is a clear statement of your belief in WCS and our ability to deliver results at a time that is critical for the planet.

Thank you for your support of our vital mission.
