Legacy Giving

Leave a Lasting Legacy as a member of our Valley Oak Society

Building a foundation of legacy supporters is vital to Sonoma Ecology Center’s future, as it will provide the footing needed to grow and thrive for generations to come. You can make a lasting impact on the health and well-being of our Valley by including Sonoma Ecology Center in your estate plans, and joining our Valley Oak Society.

With your philanthropic investment, you will help ensure that Sonoma Valley is preserved and protected for generations to come.

The beauty of legacy gifts is it’s affordable for everyone. An allocation of even 5% can make a tangible difference in the health and future of our organization. It’s easier than you might think!

With these simple words added to your will or trust, you can become a part of Sonoma Ecology Center’s Valley Oak Society and gain the confidence that your efforts will continue to preserve and protect our magnificent Valley – and our connection with it – long into the future:

“I give to Sonoma Ecology Center  ___% of my estate, or the sum of $_____ to be used by Sonoma Ecology Center.”
