Legacy Giving

For Nature, Forever

You’ve seen our landscape changing – development, pollution, and population growth are constantly putting our natural world at risk. A planned gift is one of the most impactful ways that you can support the work of Lancaster Conservancy – protecting critical habitat and waterways and educating future generations on how to be good stewards of the land. By including Lancaster Conservancy in your estate plans, you are leaving a lasting legacy that reflects your values and commitment to our natural lands.

Your planned gift helps ensure the forever part of our work, supporting the sustainability and long-term success of the organization to save and care for natural lands in perpetuity. By documenting your legacy gift, we can plan for the future, undertake strategic initiatives, and invest in projects that require continuous funding.

Legacy gifts include:

  • Bequests via will
  • Charitable trusts
  • Insurance policy, IRA and retirement plan beneficiary designations
  • IRA charitable distribution/rollover gifts which now can be made year round

Naming Lancaster County Conservancy as a beneficiary is a simple option that provides resources to the organization after your lifetime. There is no minimum for a planned gift.

The Tucquan Legacy Society

The Tucquan Legacy Society is a special and growing group of friends who share the goal of saving Lancaster County’s irreplaceable natural lands. Anyone who has made a planned gift to Lancaster Conservancy is invited to join and be celebrated for their inspiring commitment to nature.

Members are invited to an annual breakfast and lecture and will be given a one-of-a-kind pin deisnating them as members of the Tucquan Legacy Society. Members also have the option to be recognized publicly in the Conservancy’s Annual Report, released every year in the spring.

We would love the opportunity to celebrate you during your lifetime for the legacy gift you plan to leave.
