River Legacy Society

An Invitation to Join American Rivers’ River Legacy Society

Members of American Rivers’ River Legacy Society have expressed their commitment to American Rivers through a very special and important form of financial support.

These donors have named American Rivers as the ultimate beneficiary of a planned gift. Such gifts might include a bequest and/or charitable income gifts, such as charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder unitrusts, charitable remainder annuity trusts, or gifts of life insurance.

Once you complete your estate plans, please let us know. We would like to thank you for your generosity by including you in American Rivers’ River Legacy Society.

Membership Benefits

Your membership involves no dues, obligations, or solicitations, but it does allow us to thank you and recognize you for the plans you have made, and it may inspire generosity in others.

Benefits of membership in River Legacy Society also include invitations to special events, river trips and seminars around the country and a subscription to our newsletter and our electronic newsletter. We are also proud to recognize Society members in our annual report (your membership may be anonymous if you prefer). And, as a special thank you, we are pleased to offer every member a beautiful, matted 16”x18” image of a beautiful river scene of your choice, donated by the photographer, Larry Blackwood, who is himself a Society member. Note: the available images can be viewed at in the Rivers section of the online gallery.

The most important benefit, however, you will receive from joining the River Legacy Society is the satisfaction derived from making a lasting contribution to our long-term prosperity.
