Planned Giving – Your Legacy for Invertebrates

“These insects, so essential to our agriculture and indeed to our landscape as we know it, deserve something better from us than the senseless destruction of their habitat.”
– Rachel Carson, Silent Spring

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.

We highly recommend that you discuss your planned giving options with your financial/legal advisor in order to choose a gift that works best for you and your family. Once you have decided upon a legacy gift, please supply your advisor with the following information:

The Xerces Society, Inc.
501(c)(3) Tax ID #: 51-0175253
628 NE Broadway, Suite 200
Portland, OR 97232
(855) 232-6639

If you would like to inform us of your plans, or if you have questions, please complete our online legacy form. You may also email Suzanne Granahan, call us at 855-232-6639, or write to us at the address above.
