Giving Societies

There are many ways to build a more hopeful future through your giving, no matter the amount.

Sustaining gifts–those that repeat or can be counted on in the future–help WRA plan for and drive the innovative policy needed to solve climate change in the West. These types of gifts offer an easy way to create long-lasting impact with your generosity.

To recognize our most loyal donors, we have created societies that honor those who make remarkable progress possible. Society benefits include a welcome gift, special recognition and communications, and unique event experiences.

WRA The 1989 Legacy Society
The 1989 Legacy Society honors donors who have made a planned gift of any type to WRA.

We were founded in 1989 with the belief that the environment needed a strong community of dedicated advocates. That community used their expertise, time, and passion to advance solutions to the increasingly complex environmental issues of the West. This created a strong foundation of support and passion for change that propelled WRA into what it is, and what we benefit from, today.

Members of the 1989 Legacy Society are visionary individuals who name WRA in their will, trust, or other estate plans, making solutions possible in the future for generations to come. By giving this way, you can reduce the taxes on your estate while leaving a lasting impact to the cause you care about. There is no minimum gift to become a member and all ages are welcome. To become a member, simply complete our planned gift notification form to document that you have included WRA in your planning. Learn more about planned gifts.

The Source is a recurring giving program designed to provide dependable support to the ongoing work of WRA.

All water supplies have a source, and all living things need water for survival. Donors who commit to recurring gifts to WRA provide a critical source of funding to protect the lands and water we all rely on.

The scale of the climate crisis can make it easy to lose hope and overlook our ability to affect change; giving regularly to WRA is one simple and concrete way to take meaningful action. Be the source of winning solutions for the West.
