Nature Trust of New Brunswick

A planned gift is a type of donation that requires some consideration. In most cases it is a contribution that you plan for now, in order to give at some point in the future. Planned giving is a flexible way to make a donation that best suits your needs. With many planned giving options available, the creative ways to give are endless.

Why Choose Planned Giving?

At Nature Trust, we understand that family comes first.  Once one’s family is taken care of, one often considers the type of legacy they will leave behind. A planned gift to the Nature Trust ensures that future citizens of New Brunswick, our children’s children, will enjoy the opportunity to discover untouched land, to see flora and fauna in their natural settings and to be inspired by nature in all its glory.

As with any type of financial planning, we strongly recommend that you speak with your financial or legal adviser regarding your options, so that you can make a decision that takes into account your financial needs.

The Nature Trust encourages you to contact us if you have arranged for a planned gift to our organization, or if you are considering such a donation.  With this information, we can be sure that your wishes are followed through.
