Legacy Giving

Want to make a lasting contribution to the forests, rivers, and wildlife of Mt. Hood? Consider including Bark into your will, living trust, or insurance policy.  

Legacy Giving – Gifts Through Your Bequest or Will  

Legacy gifts cost you nothing now, there is no minimum contribution, and you can be updated at any time. You can designate a specific amount, a percentage of your total estate, or a share of the residue after gifts to your heirs. 

Sample Bequest Language: 

I hereby give to the Trustees of Bark, an Oregon charitable organization, tax identification number 93-1263288, (hereafter referred to as Bark), the following described property: ____________________________________________________ OR the sum of: $_____________ OR percent (____%) of the residue of my estate. 

For more information about making a legacy gift, please contact Bark Development Director Briana Villalobos at (503) 331-0374 or briana@bark-out.org

Life Insurance, IRAs, 401Ks 

Leave Bark as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy or retirement ‘vehicle.’  Tax savings for these ‘vehicles’ vary, so consult your financial advisor to learn what suits your situation. 

Real Estate or Vehicles  

If you’d like to donate a house, a piece of property, or a vehicle to Bark, we graciously accept it. Gifts are evaluated by their long-term maintence  

relevance to the Bark’s mission, so any desire to have long-term maintenance or upkeep may be a determining factor.
