Members of American Forests Evergreen Society are individuals who have included us in their estate plans. Committing to American Forests in your future gift planning is a wonderful way to leave a lasting legacy to protect and restore our forests for generations and years to come.

As a member of the Evergreen Society, you will receive many benefits, including recognition in American Forests’ Annual Report; a subscription to our monthly e-newsletter, Forest Files; a subscription to our award-winning magazine, American Forests; and invitations to exclusive events. (If you wish to remain anonymous, we will keep all information regarding your gift confidential.)

Generally, American Forests accepts estate gifts by being named as a beneficiary in a will, trust or retirement account or through a donation of stock or a life insurance policy. In some instances, American Forests also accepts gifts of real estate, but those are handled on a case-by-case basis.

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 to your individual situation and goals. We encourage you to notify American Forests once your planning is complete — even if you wish to remain anonymous — so that we may properly acknowledge your support.

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:
