Planned Giving

Providing for the future of the Frenchman Bay Conservancy 

Planned giving for charitable purposes is possible through a variety of ways, some very straightforward and others a little more complex.  

The easiest way to continue your support of Frenchman Bay Conservancy and its mission is to remember the Conservancy in your Will or Living Trust.  A simple provision such as the following may be all that is necessary: 

“I hereby give, devise and bequeath __________________ (a specific dollar amount, specific property or all or a percentage of your residuary estate) to Frenchman Bay Conservancy located at 71 Tidal Falls Road, Hancock, Maine, to be used for its (general charitable purposes or endowment).” 

One can also plan a gift to the Conservancy outside of a Will or Living Trust by naming the Conservancy as a beneficiary to a retirement plan, IRA, bank or brokerage account, life insurance policy, Charitable Lead Trust, Charitable Remainder Trust or Charitable Gift Annuity.  Your attorney or financial planner can help determine the option that works best for you. 

These are all easy and tax-efficient ways to give and support the Conservancy and help ensure its ability to protect land well into the future.

Frenchman Bay Conservancy is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization so that all gifts to the Conservancy qualify for a tax deduction.
