Ways to Give

WILD CARBON OFFSET FUND

Modern life comes with a hefty carbon impact. Travel, heat, electricity; these things are a necessary part of our lives. We know that wild forests store and sequester vast amounts of carbon. Your Wild Carbon Offset gift will protect land that will remove carbon from the atmosphere and keep it stored in the forest. Calculate the impact of your travel, heat, or electricity, and our calculator will show how much northeastern forest it takes to re-absorb those carbon emissions and how much it will cost to protect that land. Your donation to the Wild Carbon Offset Fund will be used specifically to protect forever-wild landscapes in the Northeast.

Ancient Forest Society

The Ancient Forest Society recognizes and celebrates those who have made a planned gift to guide the Wilderness Trust far into the future. Just as the wild places we safeguard will last far beyond any one lifetime, Ancient Forest Society members create a legacy that will endure for generations. Through the vision and generosity of members, the Northeast will always know what it is to love the wild.

Planned gifts are a surprisingly easy option for high-impact giving, either by making Northeast Wilderness Trust a beneficiary of a will or retirement account, or creating a charitable giving annuity.

To learn more about including the Wilderness Trust in your philanthropic plans, please contact Jon Leibowitz, Executive Director at 802.224.1000 ext. 101 or jon@newildernesstrust.org.

Donor-Advised Funds

If you have a donor-advised fund (DAF) at Fidelity, Schwab, or BNY Mellon, DAFDirect makes it easy to support Northeast Wilderness Trust by giving directly from your fund.

Spirit Sanctuary

Northeast Wilderness Trust is a proud partner of the Spirit Sanctuary. This three-acre green burial ground rests in the heart of the Split Rock Wildway in Essex, New York, and was created by the Eddy Foundation. At the Spirit Sanctuary, people will naturally become a part of the earth and nourish a forever-regenerating forest. It is, and forever will be, a place of protected habitat for native plants, birds, and other animals. By choosing a green burial you can support Northeast Wilderness Trust and leave a lasting environmental legacy.
