Members of our Evergreen Society, American Forests’ planned giving program, are individuals who have generously included American Forests in their estate plans. Making a commitment to American Forests through your future gift planning is a meaningful way to leave a lasting legacy that will protect and restore our forests for generations to come.

As a member of the Evergreen Society you will receive many benefits, including recognition in American Forests’ Year in Review, a subscription to our award-winning magazine, and invitations to exclusive events. If you wish to remain anonymous, we will keep all information regarding your gift confidential.

Evergreen Society thumbGenerally, American Forests accepts estate gifts by being named as a beneficiary in a will, trust or retirement account, through a donation of stock, or through a life insurance policy. In some instances and considered on a case-by-case basis, American Forests also accepts gifts of real estate.

Establishing a legacy gift benefiting American Forests can provide a way to meet both your philanthropic objectives and estate planning needs. You should consult your attorney or financial planner to help you select which specific arrangements are best suited for your individual situation and goals. We encourage you to notify American Forests once your planning is complete, so that we may properly acknowledge your support. While we would like to thank you publicly, we will respectfully honor requests for anonymity.

Enrollment in the Evergreen Society is easy. After making the necessary arrangements with your attorney or financial planner, please download and complete the commitment form (PDF) and return it to:
