For nearly 80 years, the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy has conserved exceptional natural places throughout Western Pennsylvania. With the help of our supporters, we have ensured that anyone visiting or living in the region can experience the beauty of nature — whether in a city, town, farmland or at Fallingwater. These special places are available for the public to enjoy today and into the future.

Perhaps you’ve already included the Conservancy in your estate plans by making WPC a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, retirement plan or will.

We understand that these things can change over time, but ask that you tell us about your intentions so that we can honor them — and you — now. This will also allow us to fully understand what you wish to accomplish through your planned gift and help you realize your philanthropic goals. As a member of the Heritage Circle for gift planning, you will get personal updates on the Conservancy’s plans and progress and will receive invitations to special outings and events that will provide a closer experience of our work.

If you have already included WPC in your estate plans, thank you! If you would like more information about including the Conservancy in your plans, we welcome your inquiry. Please provide your contact information on the form below and return it in the enclosed envelope, or call Carey Scheide Miller, Director of Development, at
