Membership and Planned Giving
Remember the Past; Live for the Present; Secure the Future
Planned giving is for everyone -- all ages and budgets. It can be a gift of cash, stock, property, annuity, pooled income fund, charitable remainder trust, or bequest. You can make a difference to Aullwood's future by planning your gift now.
Charitable giving through a planned gift insures that Aullwood's sanctuary and innovative education activities will flourish. It is a way to express your love of nature and appreciation of farming. A planned gift insures that Marie Aull's vision of providing a "place to encounter dawn...probe a marsh...explore a farm...look across a tallgrass prairie...experience natural things" will continue for generations to come.
Giving opportunities come in many sizes, shapes and forms.
- Stocks, Bonds, IRAs and Mutual Funds
- Real Estate
- Insurance Policy
- Charitable Gift Annuity
- Pooled Income Fund
- Charitable Remainder Trust
Your attorney or accountant will be able to discuss each option in detail with you. Remember... EVERY gift is significant!
All planned gifts to Aullwood will be used after your death to fund our education programs and maintain our nature sanctuary. A planned gift makes you a member of the Aull Society.
