EXPLORE ALL YOUR GIVING OPTIONS
Whatever your stage in life, your financial circumstances and your charitable goals, let us show you how you can make a gift that benefits you and your loved ones as well as the Parkway you care about.

GIFTS THROUGH YOUR WILL
Bequests support the American River Parkway Foundation’s work and protect the future of the Parkway. Donors choose a bequest because it is not payable until death and it is revocable, which allows you to change provisions on how funds are allocated. A bequest under your will or revocable trust can complement your lifestyle and commitments today while supporting the American River Parkway Foundation tomorrow.

By choosing to name the American River Parkway Foundation as a beneficiary in your will or trust you are ensuring the vitality of the region’s greatest recreational civic amenity, the Parkway. Your gift will support the Parkway Foundation’s work in conserving this natural environment.

All that is necessary is a short statement in your will or trust. Below are samples wordings:

Residual: “I give to the American River Parkway Foundation (Tax ID#94-2881344) the rest and residue of my estate.”

Portion: “I give to the American River Parkway Foundation (Tax ID#94-2881344) __ % of my estate.”
