2018 is a special year for The Nature Conservancy because it marks the 25th anniversary of our Legacy Club's founding. Legacy gifts like yours allow us to plan ahead and work more efficiently at a larger scale—meaning even better results for nature.
The Legacy Club's founder, Angela Woo Sosdian, reflects on the beginnings of this special community and describes what you and your fellow Legacy Club members mean to her in the brief video below.

"This world needs us to think beyond the present. I want to make a difference in this world tomorrow.”
- Edwin Austin

Messages of Gratitude from Conservancy Staff
"Thank you to our Legacy Club members for allowing us to be bold! You provide us with the stability we need to work on big problems rather than only chasing after things we can do quickly and easily.
There are so many choices about the legacy you want to leave after you’re gone - I’m humbled and honored that so many people have put their faith in the Conservancy. That faith inspired me to become a Legacy Club member myself."
"I am always in awe of the incredible dedication and commitment of our Legacy Club members. 'Thank you' feels insufficient to express my gratitude for what you do for nature."-Jon Fisher, Senior Conservation Scientist
-Anna Simmonds, Director of Bequests and Annuities
"Thank you for everything you do. Your vision for a better world and your deep generosity make the work we do possible and ensure the Conservancy will have resources to continue the conservation legacy we have built together."
