The Keystone Circle: Your Wildlands Legacy Through Planned Giving

Creating a Lasting Legacy by Joining the Keystone Circle

The Keystone Circle is open to anyone at any level who wants to leave behind a lasting legacy for Oregon’s wild places and wildlife.

Including Oregon Wild in your planned giving is easy and each person’s plan can be as varied and unique as the wild places that inspire us. Legacy giving isn’t just for the wealthy. Whether $500 or $50 million, every legacy gift makes a difference and helps ensure that Oregon Wild will be fighting for what’s most important to you long after you’ve reached the end of the trail.

Just as keystone species have a tremendous impact on the health and future of their natural ecosystems, the Keystone Circle will set the course for the future health of Oregon’s wild places.
