Planned Giving

When you join the Prairie Legacy Society, you help guarantee the incredible wildlife reserve we’re building today will be cared for long into the future.

The Prairie Legacy Society honors those demonstrating a remarkable commitment to American Prairie Reserve by naming the Reserve a beneficiary of their will, life insurance policy, or other legacy gift. 

Joining the Prairie Legacy Society is an important decision, and we are here to help. If you would like to discuss making a planned gift to American Prairie Reserve, please contact Gavin Clark:

Why Join the Prairie Legacy Society?

There are many reasons why a planned gift may be right for you. By making a planned gift, you will be able to:

  • Have an impact on the Reserve lasting beyond your lifetime.
  • Make a substantial contribution, often of a larger amount than one is capable of providing through annual support alone.
  • Assist American Prairie Reserve’s planning by providing anticipated future income.
  • Receive a variety of potential tax benefits, depending on the nature of your gift.
  • Inspire others to make extraordinary commitments to the Reserve’s growth and success.

Most importantly, your legacy gift lays the groundwork for the Reserve’s future success, ensuring the vast wildlife reserve we are creating today thrives for generations to come.
