Charitable Giving Options

Will or Trust Bequest, and Join Cedar Run’s Legacy Circle

Need to preserve your assets during your lifetime? You can plan a gift to us that will only take effect after your other obligations have ceased.

The Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge Legacy Circle is a special society of our most faithful supporters that have included Cedar Run in their will or estate plan. Cedar Run has worked tirelessly for over 60 years as an active resource to the greater New Jersey community on all wildlife and habitat related issues and is only possible through the continued support of generous donors like you.

We suggest reviewing your plans with your financial advisor and/or attorney about your goals and which type of gift is right for your lasting legacy. A current will can be amended with a codicil to add a designation for Cedar Run. By including Cedar Run in your will or estate plan, you are creating a personal legacy that will protect and preserve New Jersey’s wildlife and habitats through education, conservation, and rehabilitation for generations to come.

Learn more about how to become part of the Cedar Run Legacy Circle.

Beneficiary Designation Gifts

You can name Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge as the beneficiary of your life insurance, annuity, trust or IRA.  Your estate could receive a charitable deduction for the value of the bequest.

Life Insurance Gifts

Purchase and gift a new contract to Cedar Run, or gift an existing contract to provide Cedar Run and its wildlife support for the future.  The contract’s value and premiums might qualify for an income tax deduction.  Gift is given only upon your passing.

Investment Gifts

Transfer your ownership of an investment — for example land, a mutual fund or a stock — to Cedar Run as a gift for the future.  If you itemize your tax deductions, you may receive a deduction for the gift you make.  You may be able to reduce or eliminate capital gains and estate taxation through this gift as well.
