Welcome. Let’s build a legacy through planned giving. It’s easier than you think.

If you’re here, it’s likely the Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation has had an impact on you and now you want to make an impact in other lives. Planned giving can extend that impact in ways you may have never even realized were possible. Planned giving, also referred to as gift planning and planned gifts or legacy giving/gifts, are designated through the assets of your estate. Some allow you to receive immediate tax benefits now—and even a recurring income for life. Others provide a way to include PPFF as a beneficiary in your will.

We’ve created the PPFF Conservation Legacy Society to thank people just like you who further PPFF’s mission through legacy gifts. As a member, you become part of an exclusive group of friends who ensure PPFF continues to inspire stewardship of Pennsylvania’s state parks and forests far into the future.

If you’ve already made a planned gift to the Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation, please let us know. We would be honored to welcome you into the Conservation Legacy Society.


Planned gifts are often viewed as an option for wealthy philanthropists. The truth is, gifts to PPFF are easy to make and a wise investment in your future—and in ours. They provide a way for you, regardless of your age or income level, to support PPFF in a much more significant way than you may have ever realized was possible, while also reducing or eliminating certain taxes for you or your loved ones.

We’ve created a valuable reference guide where you can find information about the options and advantages of most planned gifts. Click here to learn how gift planning helps PPFF continue to to inspire stewardship of Pennsylvania’s state parks and forests through public engagement in volunteerism, education, and recreation for generations to come.


Have you already remembered PPFF in your estate plans? We would love to hear what inspired you. Share your story and let us know you’ve remembered PPFF through a planned gift.
