Pass Along Willistown’s Good Nature
Join those who have included the Trust in their estate plans and are now members of our Legacy Society. You’ll be passing along Willistown’s good nature to future generations.
No matter the size of your estate, and regardless of your age, you can support land conservation now and well into the future. Your will or trust empowers you to name the people and organizations, such as the Willistown Conservation Trust, who will benefit from your hard-earned assets. Help us ensure that your children and their children will be able to enjoy the same beautiful, natural places that exist today.
Thank you for considering a gift that keeps on giving.
Your Planned Gift
Thanks to our partnership with the Chester County Community Foundation through our Willistown Conservation Trust Endowment Fund, there are many planned giving options available to you.
One of the simplest planned gifts is naming the Trust as a beneficiary in your will, IRA, qualified retirement plan, or life insurance policy. This option is revocable and will not affect your current finances, but will create a lasting impact on your community as well as the future of the natural world in Willistown.

Other planned giving options may offer income tax deductions and potential gift or estate tax benefits:
- Charitable Lead Trusts: Give annually now to the Trust for a specified time period of your choosing up to 20 years, and preserve principal for a future generation.
- Charitable Gift Annuities or Charitable Remainder Trusts: Future giving to the Trust and a life income to you or a designated beneficiary now.
- Outright Gifts such as a contribution to the Trust’s Endowment Fund, a life insurance policy, or a gift of real estate.
