How It Works

Read an Example

Father and daughter smiling When Sarah's father passed away, she knew she wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for him. She remembered that during his lifetime he was always praising NRDC for its tireless efforts to safeguard the planet.

Sarah decided to make a gift to NRDC in her father's name using retirement plan assets. Not only will her father's legacy live on at NRDC thanks to the gift, but Sarah has peace of mind knowing that she is supporting our work for years to come.
