Planned Giving:
A powerful commitment to wild salmon strongholds

If history has taught us anything, it’s that while our most extraordinary rivers are still strongholds for wild fish today, their well-being is by no means assured. Protecting our best wild salmon watersheds will take a long-term, multigenerational commitment.

Making a bequest to Wild Salmon Center is a powerful way to remember the beautiful rivers and landscapes that mean the most to you—the ones you want to see thrive today, tomorrow, and for generations to come.

Right now, WSC has a remarkable opportunity to do more with your planned gift: an anonymous donor has offered to match all new bequests to WSC, doubling your impact for wild fish.

There are many ways to start building your stronghold legacy. We welcome the opportunity to work with you (or your advisors) to create a plan that fits your needs and supports our work to ensure these globally-important ecosystems continue to benefit our children and grandchildren.
