Dedicate a Redwood Grove through Bequest
Grove naming opportunities are available for gifts made during one's lifetime or through one's estate.
Help ensure that the beauty and grandeur of the redwoods will continue to inspire future generations. Many feel that there is no more fitting way to honor and memorialize your family, friends or yourself, than by ensuring that the peace, perspective and sense of awe that comes from the ancient redwood forest is kept alive forever.
Your gift will help Save the Redwoods League preserve these special places, allowing us to purchase redwood land, restore logged forests, research how to best protect them and teach children and adults about these magical expressions of life.
Grove naming opportunities are available for gifts made during one's lifetime or through one's estate. If you dedicate a grove through your will or trust, Save the Redwoods League will work closely with your family members, friends, or the executor or attorney of your estate to fulfill your wishes and choose a fitting place in the forest. If you have already included the League in your estate plan with language to dedicate a grove, thank you. Please contact Megan Ferreira at (415) 820-5809, or firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can discuss and record your preferences.
Grove donation amounts vary based on the size and age of the trees, density of forest cover, acreage, accessibility and location. While the current minimum donation to dedicate a grove is $25,000, supporters often chose to set aside much more. More information about the program.
Suggested Language to Include in Your Bequest
Save the Redwoods League recommends the following additional grove language in your will or trust:
"I request that a grove be established in the following name: '_______ Grove.' If this grove request cannot be met for any reason, including but not limited to lack of available groves or insufficient gift amount, then I request that a substitute honor tree be selected by the Board of Directors of Save the Redwoods League."
You Can Open the Gate to a Hidden Sequoia World
Southeast of Three Rivers in the Sierra Nevada is a kingdom of giant sequoias reachable on foot, mountain bike and horseback. Ancient giants here measure as much as 16 feet across, likely wider than your dining room. Save the Redwoods League is working with Sequoia Riverlands Trust and the Bureau of Land Management to buy Craig Ranch and provide easy access to the majestic ancient trees.
