Planned Giving

Why make a gift of stock?

A gift of stock, or other securities, such as bonds or mutual funds can be one of the most beneficial gifts to Friends of the Rainforest. The total value of your gift is tax-deductible provided it has been held for at least one year, and there is no obligation to pay any capital gains tax on the appreciated value. The gift is fully deductible.


What’s in a Will?

A will is vital to estate planning whether or not you consider yourself wealthy.  Adding Friends of the Rainforest to your will allows you to ensure a legacy gift to protect the rainforest for future generations after you no longer need the money.  You can chose to make a percentage gift which allows for more flexibility, or settle on a fixed amount.


Retirement Planning?

Did you know that you can name Friends of the Rainforest as a beneficiary to your retirement or insurance plans?  Adding FOTR to your plans creates a lasting way for you to protect the environment and the delicate rainforest habitats that are threatened daily.
