Ways to Give

  • Give a Recurring Gift: A monthly, quarterly, or yearly recurring gift helps you plan your giving and provides NatureServe with a consistent and reliable source of funding.
  • Planned Giving: Naming NatureServe as a beneficiary in a will, insurance policy, or other instrument is simple and has lasting effects that benefit your estate as well as NatureServe.
  • Memorial and Tribute Gifts: Make a gift to NatureServe in honor of someone or something that you care about. You can designate the honoree of your choice, or support one of our ongoing memorial funds:
  • Workplace and Corporate Giving: Gifts made at work through employee contribution plans are often matched by your company. And businesses can demonstrate their commitment to biodiversity information while realizing tax benefits. Both approaches can enhance employee morale and public image, while contributing to an environmentally sustainable future.
