Boulder Outlook

Your donation to the Boulder Outlook campaign to build our office includes naming opportunities to honor a loved one or make a statement about your company or family’s support of conservation. Your donation will also rebuild our land fund (which is financing the remodel) so we can preserve more land in the future.

Education Fund

The Escondido Creek Conservancy Education Fund.

Our education programs are reaching more students now than ever before, but with greater impact comes greater costs. We are launching the Escondido Creek Education Fund to sustain our educational programs and continue connecting students to nature.

Heavy Equipment Fund

Help us Rev up restoration! With more land spread throughout the watershed, a land team of 3, and just under 3,000 acres to restore, we are in desperate need of another truck so our land team can divide and conquer! If anyone has connections with dealerships or auctions, knows someone who may be willing to donate their truck, or someone who would be willing to give us a great deal, please send that info our way!

The Missing Lynx

For The Missing Lynx campaign, the Conservancy has prioritized land acquisitions in areas that are contiguous to other preserved lands in the Escondido Creek watershed. With your help, we can protect and preserve these “missing lynx” that are vital to the success of our native species so they can live, and live wild.

Eichen Fund

The Interpretive Center gives a voice to the Escondido Creek watershed, inspiring visitors to feel connected to nature, value open space and the creek, and is full of exciting exhibits, dynamic displays, and interactive activities for visitors to discover. It serves as a venue for fun nature-based programs and events. None of these things would be possible without donations from supporters like you.

There are many ways you can arrange a meaningful, tax-deductible gift to the Conservancy, the following listed are the most common.

Of course, we always recommend you work with your advisors to determine which gift(s) is most appropriate for you.

  • An Outright Gift: Cash, personal property, securities, and real estate.
  • Gifts Through a Will or Trust: One of the most common types of planned gifts. You can leave the Conservancy a specific amount or asset, a percentage of your estate, or the remainder after specific gifts to loved ones have been made.
  • Gifts Through a Retirement Plan or Life Insurance: You can name the Conservancy as the beneficiary of your individual retirement account (IRA), 401(k), 403(b), donor-advised fund (DAF), life insurance policy or another account. IF you’re 70 1/2 or older you can roll over your IRA’s required minimum distribution (RMD) annually up to $100,000! Gifts are easy to arrange or modify.
  • Charitable Gift Annuities: Allow me to make a gift, receive income for life, and experience tax benefits. The remainder will benefit my charitable interest.
  • Charitable Remainder Trust/Charitable Annuity Trusts: Legal instruments that provide income and tax benefits to me, leaving the remainder to charity.
  • Gifts or Real Estate: Allow me to deed my home to charity and continue to live there for my lifetime.
  • Charitable Lead Trusts: Allow me to make gifts to a charity for a number of years, and experience tax benefits. My family receives the remainder at substantial tax savings.
