GIFTS THROUGH WILLS AND LIVING TRUSTS

Making provisions within your will or trust for BHA is perhaps the most significant commitment that one can make for the future of wild places. Simply include language that reflects either a percentage of your estate, amount or specific asset to bequeath to BHA.

SAMPLE LANGUAGE FOR GIFTS AND LIVING WILLS

  1. Residual Gift: “All the residue of my estate, including real and personal property, I give to Backcountry Hunters & Anglers, located in Missoula, Montana.”
  2. A Percentage of the Estate: “I give to Backcountry Hunters & Anglers, located in Missoula, Montana, ______ percent of my estate.”
  3. A Fixed Amount of Money or a Designated Property: “I give to Backcountry Hunters & Anglers, located in Missoula, Montana, $_________ (or describe the real or personal property, including legal description or exact location).”

SIMPLEST BENEFICIARY DESIGNATIONS

One of the simplest ways to support Backcountry Hunters & Anglers is by naming BHA as a beneficiary of your retirement account(s) or life insurance policy.

CREATE A MEMORIAL OR HONORARIUM

BHA can create memorials and honorarium at the request of families and friends who wish to remember or honor their loved ones through perpetual work on behalf of our wild public lands, waters and wildlife.

More avenues to consider are planned gifts that can provide you and your family – while you are alive – financial benefits, retirement income or income tax deductions. These include Charitable Gift Annuities, Charitable Remainder Trusts and Retained Life Estates.
