If you care about graceful sea turtles and their ocean home, please consider making a bequest to the Sea Turtle Restoration Project. We are deeply grateful to those friends of the ocean who, through their will or living trust, make a gift to support the ocean conservation work of future generations.
If you are considering a bequest, you may wish to consider the benefits of a life income trust and discuss them with a financial advisor. Donors often realize significant advantages by using a major portion of a planned bequest for the establishment of such a trust.
A charitable remainder trust is an arrangement in which the donor transfers cash, securities, or real estate to a trust that provides the donor, (or someone else chosen by the donor) with an income based on a fixed percentage (at least 5%) of the trust’s assets. The terms of the trust can be tailored to your specific financial and charitable goals. Due to the nature of this type of vehicle, $100,000 is the minimum necessary to establish a charitable remainder trust.
In addition to the gift options described above, gifts may be made to the Sea Turtle Restoration Project and Turtle Island Restoration Network including life insurance, gifts from tax deferred qualified retirement accounts, and other vehicles.
