PLANNED GIVING

A charitable bequest is one of the simplest ways to provide continuing support to the Xerces Society beyond your lifetime. Your gift will have a lasting impact on the conservation of essential invertebrates and help preserve these creatures for future generations.

 

Make a Charitable Bequest

Leave a portion of your estate, such as cash or stock, to the Xerces Society in your will.

Beneficiary Designation

Make Xerces a beneficiary of your IRA or life insurance policy. Simply request a beneficiary designation form from your plan administrator.

IRA QCD

If you are 70½ or older, ask your professional advisor if giving directly from your IRA is a tax-wise way for you to give.

Appreciated Securities

Donating stock is a simple, smart way to give. Call us at (855) 232-6639, option #2, for our account number.

We highly recommend that you discuss your planned giving options with your professional advisor in order to choose a gift that works best for you and your family.
