Gift and Estate Planning

Preserve tropical rainforests and their wildife for generations to come. Make the gift of a lifetime.
Making a planned gift to Coalition for Rainforest Nations ensures that we are able to fight global deforestation for many years to come. By adding CfRN to your will, trust, or other planned giving vehicle, you are protecting our rainforests for future generations.

How It Works

Almost all legacy gifts to CfRN are made through a will or trust. You may decide to leave to CfRN*:

  • A specific dollar amount or asset (e.g. marketable securities) OR
  • A percentage of your residual estate (what remains after gifts to loved ones and expenses have been paid)

* Important – Please consult your financial advisor, attorney, and/or planned giving specialist first if you are considering a legacy gift to CfRN.
