Make A Bequest

Sandhill Cranes in flight

You can help safeguard the flock – join the Crane Legacy Society today.

Like the vigilant crane – we all understand the importance of planning for a secure future. The International Crane Foundation has worked tirelessly for decades to safeguard the natural treasures needed by all of Earth’s inhabitants. Planning for a legacy gift now will make a difference for generations to come.

The Crane Legacy Society was established as a way for us to show our tremendous gratitude to those individuals who made the meaningful decision to make a legacy gift to the International Crane Foundation. Society members receive a lifetime membership and will receive invitations as guests to exclusive gatherings to celebrate cranes and conservation and to recognize your future gift.

Please note that the International Crane Foundation, like all charitable organizations, is prohibited from giving tax or legal advice. Please consult with your financial or estate advisor about which legacy gift is the best fit for you.
