Support Our Work

There are many reasons to help Six Rivers Land Conservancy preserve the special lands close to home and work. These range from proven increases in positive attitudes when we’re close to nature to the preservation of critical wetlands that provide important breeding areas for many fish and bird species. We hope you will find a reason of your own to support our day-to-day mission of preserving the lands and waters of our region.

Recurring Gifts

When you choose to give a recurring gift, you will be helping Six Rivers maintain consistent funding each month, which allows us to more effectively plan and get more work done. When you make a recurring gift, this amount will be processed on the card of your choice each month for the following 12 months. To set up your recurring gift or to cancel these withdrawals at any time, please contact Betsy Zobl Jagosz, our Operations Manager, at bzobltar@sixriversrlc.org or by phone at 248-601-2816.

Legacy Giving

Six Rivers Land Conservancy has benefited from supporters who have left gifts to the Conservancy in their wills. These may be gifts of cash or securities or gifts of land. Gifts of land may be planned to be preserved as conservation land or planned as an asset the Conservancy can sell in order to use the proceeds to purchase conservation land. It is important to include the Conservancy in your planning, especially with gifts of land, so please contact us if you’re considering including us in your estate.

Major GIFTS

Individuals who have the ability to make larger gifts want to invest in an organization that can help them make a difference in the world and their community. We invite you to consider Six Rivers Land Conservancy when you plan your charitable giving. We would be happy to meet with you to plan your gift, which might include designation of your gift to a program that is of special interest to you. Major gifts can include non-cash items such as securities, real estate, or other items of value. If you're interested in finding out how you can make an impact with a major gift, please contact Angela Wilhelm, our Development Director, at awilhelm@sixriversrlc.org or by phone at 248-601-2816.

Planned Giving 

The work of Six Rivers Land Conservancy is made possible through gifts from individuals, grants from foundations and corporations, and revenue from our events. It is only with your gifts and support that we are able to do our work. Supported by your gifts, we pledge to preserve and protect land with joy and integrity and to invite you to be a part of that work. Together we can engage in our greatness as human beings and in the rediscovery of our home in the natural world.

"I challenge you to move the resources that flow through your life toward your highest commitments and ideals, those things you stand for. I challenge you to imbue your money with soul - your soul - and let it stand for who you are, your love, your heart, your word, and your humanity." (From Lynne Twist, The Soul of Money)

With any planned giving option, it is very important that you work with your personal financial and tax advisor to do what is right for you and your family – and your land. For charitable gift annuities, Six Rivers has a relationship with the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan.

For information or assistance in planning your gift annuity, you can contact the Community Foundation at (313) 961-6675 or visit them on the web at www.cfsem.org.
