Planned Giving


Leaving A Lasting Gift for Carnivore Conservation


Planned giving comes in many forms and gives supporters a way to make lasting gifts to a cause they believe in. Designating People and Carnivores as a recipient of a planned gift provides you and your family a sense of satisfaction and pride, knowing your contribution will continue to make a difference for wild carnivores and western lands into the future.


A planned gift may take the form of an estate gift or a life-income gift. Examples of planned gifts include:

     • Naming People and Carnivores in your estate plan

            (e.g., will or trust)


     • Naming People and Carnivores as a beneficiary of an insurance             policy (e.g., life insurance or an annuity)

     • Gifts of real estate or securities (e.g., stocks, bonds,

             or mutual funds)


Depending on your goals, there are several potential benefits to a planned gift, including tax savings, charitable donation tax deductions, avoidance of capital gains, and more. As mentioned above, a planned gift provides donors with a sense of satisfaction for supporting an important mission. Please consult your financial services or tax consultant if you are considering a planned gift.


If you wish to designate a specific purpose for your gift, please contact People and Carnivores’ office to ensure we understand your wishes. As an alternative to restricting the use of your gift, consider making your gift flexible so that future directions and projects of the organization are accommodated.


If you have any questions, or would like more information about including People and Carnivores in your will, please contact our Executive Director, Lisa Upson, at 406.587.3389. If you do include People and Carnivores in your estate or other plans, please let us know so that we can thank you properly for your generosity. If you have made any planned giving arrangements under our previous name, Keystone Conservation, let us know so that we can help to ensure your wishes are fulfilled.
