Planned gifts to Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation from people who love of Texas will help to ensure the future of our natural and cultural resources for generations to come.

The people that approach us about planned gifts, have such strong feelings towards the mission, and love the idea that they can leave a wild legacy through a gift to the Parks and Wildlife Foundation after they’re gone.

Merrill Gregg, Director of Legacy Giving, says Texas Parks and Wildlife magazine’s October issue has more information about Legacy Giving.

As well as an insert where people can fill in their contact information and send it back to the Foundation. We’ll reach out with additional information on the different types of planned gifts that might be appropriate for you.

Individuals who make planned gifts are remembered via the newly formed John Graves Legacy Society.

And this society is named after John Graves, who was a beloved writer. His book Good-bye to a River, is celebrated by conservationists as raising awareness about the critical need to protect Texas’ natural resources. So, we thought naming our Legacy Society after someone who had left such an incredible legacy on conservation would be a wonderful tribute to him, and also inspire others to embrace that same conservation ethic.
