Legacy Giving

Your legacy of caring for Mt. Hood’s forests and rivers can be secured with your will or living trust, or life insurance policy.

At 11,240 feet, Mt. Hood is the highest point in Oregon, a peak that can be seen from great distances, and its forests are home to some of the last old growth stands that support critical habitat, clean drinking water, and quiet recreation.

By including Bark in your will, you will make a lasting contribution to the forests, rivers, and wildlife of Mt. Hood. You can designate a specific amount, a percentage of your total estate, or a share of the residue after gifts to your heirs.

Legacy gifts cost you nothing now, there is no minimum contribution, and you are not locked into your decision today. For more information, please contact Christine at 503-331-0374, or by email at christine@bark-out.org.
