Beneficiary Designation

You can name Nature Consortium as a designated beneficiary of many different assets — your IRA; 401(k), 403(b), or other qualified retirement plan; life insurance policy; commercial annuity contract; bank account; or brokerage account.

Charitable Remainder Trust

A charitable remainder trust pays you and/or your loved one an income stream for life or a specified number of years. Upon the trust’s termination, Nature Consortium receives the remaining assets held by the trust.

Charitable Lead Trust

A charitable lead trust makes payments to Nature Consortium for your lifetime or a specified number of years. At the end of the trust term, the remaining assets are either returned to you or distributed to your heirs.

Outright Gifts of Other Assets

Nature Consortium supporters may contribute not only cash and securities, but also, in some cases, real estate, savings bonds and commercial annuities.
