Legacy Giving

What will your Legacy be?

Join our Legacy Circle to continue improving watershed health for the fish, wildlife, and people of Johnson Creek watershed.

We are committed to community building, hands-on restoration work, science-based climate resilience programs and advancing equity.

It’s not the amount that matters

You can make stewardship of Johnson Creek part of your legacy by naming JCWC in your will, life insurance, or other estate plans. There are also ways to give in your lifetime that cost you nothing, reduce your capital gains, save on estate taxes, and provide JCWC with valuable capital to help us continue our mission.

Ways of Giving

If you have questions about how planned giving can benefit you and JCWC, please speak with your attorney or financial planner to find out how some of the following options might fit into your estate plans:

  • Gifts from wills or estate plans
  • Life insurance or stock
  • Real estate
  • Gifts from retirement plans
  • Donor advised funds or trusts

Contact us

If you have already named JCWC in your estate plans, please let us know. Informing us of your gift ensures it will be used as you intended, and if your gift is acknowledged, it may inspire others.

We want to be role models for our children and grandchildren

Our family supports the Johnson Creek Watershed Council through a legacy gift stated in our will. We believe the Council makes a significant impact on our streams and our communities. Community engagement at the local level is where individuals can truly make a difference. Please join us in the legacy circle to ensure that this important work continues for the next generation and beyond.

I want to make Johnson Creek better for salmon and people

To ensure Community Advocacy for Johnson Creek continues loud and strong, and that our programs flourish, I donate to the Council. If you feel that it is important to continue this advocacy for the Creek and its watershed, I urge you to join me in giving to JCWC.

—Walt Mintkeski, Watershed Council Co-founder
