Other Ways to Give

You can help protect wilderness for generations to come by giving to The Wilderness Society.

 

At The Wilderness Society, we are working to complete a system of protected wildlands in the United States and we need your help.

Your tax-deductible gift will help us continue this important land conservation work. With your gift, you are leaving behind a legacy of wilderness support and ensuring that American wildlands thrive for generations to come

Giving Through Your Will

You can support The Wilderness Society by leaving a gift through your will or estate plan.

Workplace Giving

Making a donation through payroll deduction is one of the easiest and cost-efficient ways to help protect wilderness.

Giving Stock

Gifts of stocks, bonds or mutual funds appreciated in value may be especially attractive to you under the current tax laws.

Contribute Mutual Fund Shares

Much like a gift of stock, mutual funds are another way that you can make a larger gift than you might ordinarily be able to give – simply by giving shares of mutual funds you've owned for more than one year.

Endowment Funds

The Wilderness Society is committed to ensuring the long term protection of our public lands through the development and management of Endowment Funds. Each year, a percentage of the endowment’s interest is used to fund a designated program. By contributing to a Wilderness Society Endowment Fund you are investing in the future of America’s public lands.

    The Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument will be a unit of the National Park Service and was announced on the eve of the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service, which was established on August 25, 1916.

    The next fiscal year starts on Oct. 1, meaning that Congress is running out of time to cobble together "must-pass" appropriations legislation that will pay for the day-to-day expenses of the federal government.

    But in what has become a sad annual commentary on some leaders' dereliction of America's conservation tradition, the process is gummed up with counterproductive “riders” that have no place in the appropriations process, and would hurt wildlands right when they sorely need our help.

    The court rejected a claim by Elko County Nevada that it owns a road, commonly known as the South Canyon Road, at the edge of the Jarbidge Wilderness within the federally managed Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest. The ruling officially disapproved a 2001 settlement agreement between the United States and Elko County that would have given the county the right-of-way.
