Conservation Northwest is now part of Freewill, a free online tool to write your legal will and plan legacy gifts.

Summer is here! From the wolves to the fishers to the towering forests, the beautiful spaces of the Pacific Northwest are adapting to the warmer months — and thanks to your support, they’ll see many bright seasons ahead.
You are one of the conservationists, activists, wildlife lovers and outdoor enthusiasts that are helping to secure a thriving future for the Northwest. In thanks, I want to introduce a resource to protect your own future: an online tool to write your legal will, at no personal cost.
Many people may not realize that estate planning is a simple, essential way to protect the people and places we hold dear. Our conservation work is centered on stewardship, and creating a will isn’t so different: it’s protecting what we have today, for a brighter future tomorrow.
Thisfree tool is a result of our new partnership with FreeWill, which has been featured in Forbes and Oprah’s 31 Best Ways to Make a Difference. FreeWill removes the expensive legal fees associated with writing a will, and has been used by over 290,000 Americans to steward their assets forward.
It can also be used to create an optional legacy gift. Legacy gifts will keep the Northwest wild for generations to come, and cost nothing today. Whether or not you make this gift, know that this resource is completely free to use for our conservation community!
