What is The Legacy Circle?

The Legacy Circle is a special society recognizing supporters who include WWF in a will or estate plan, or who establish a gift with WWF that provides income for life. For over 50 years, WWF has worked to conserve nature and reduce the most pressing threats to the diversity of life on Earth through the vital support of the Legacy Circle and other individuals who have made special commitments to WWF. Everything we have accomplished we have accomplished with you, our donors.

We hope you will consider joining the Legacy Circle and help continue WWF's work conserving our world's diverse treasures. Through your estate plan, you can pass on your cherished values and share the wonder of nature with generations to come.

Become a member of the Legacy Circle by doing any of the following:

  • Name WWF as a beneficiary in your will or trust
  • Name WWF as a beneficiary of your retirement plan or life insurance policy
  • Make a gift to WWF that provides you, or someone you name, with income for life
  • Make a gift to WWF through a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust

Getting started is easier than you think.

To make it quick and easy for you to begin writing your will, we've partnered with our friends at FreeWill, who have developed an intuitive, online will-writing tool that is entirely free and typically takes no more than 25 minutes from start to finish.

This tool is free to you whether you choose to include a gift to the World Wildlife Fund or not, and can be used to create a fully valid legal will or guide you through planning your will before finding a lawyer near you.
