What will the next generation inherit from you?

A family at McConnells Mill

For more than 78 years, the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy has partnered with members like you to conserve truly spectacular natural places. Because of our work, you can hike all day in beautiful places like McConnells Mill State Park, canoe down pristine rivers and streams, hunt, camp, fish, enjoy Fallingwater and the surrounding Bear Run Nature Reserve and get a glimpse of nature through our community gardens and greenspaces right in your community.

It has taken the hard work and the keen foresight of many generations to get us to this point, but our work is far from done. We need your continued support to ensure that the next generation will also be able to enjoy nature in this magnificent region.

By including the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy in your estate plans, you will ensure that our natural heritage is also a part of your legacy. What’s more, you can conserve these great places through your estate without impacting your current standard of living. Simple ways to establish a charitable legacy with WPC include adding WPC as a beneficiary in your will, retirement plan or life insurance, or setting up a charitable gift annuity — which pays guaranteed income for life.

For the third year in a row, WPC has received the highest four-star rating by Charity Navigator, an independent agency that evaluates the effectiveness of charities. This rating indicates that we are exceptional stewards of donor support. You can be assured that your legacy will be well-preserved with an estate gift to the Conservancy.
