MATCHED GIFT PROGRAM
Many companies offer a Matched Giving Program as part of their Payroll Giving which allows you to have an even greater impact on critical conservation research by doubling or even tripling your gift at no extra cost to you.
The additional support you are able to raise through your employer’s matched giving program will be used to fund one-of-a-kind research expeditions throughout the world and will be acknowledged as part of your total annual giving.
PLANNED GIFTS AND BEQUESTS
A planned charitable gift to Earthwatch is an investment in the future: yours and ours. By naming Earthwatch as a beneficiary, your assets will come to us after your lifetime and may not even need to go through probate. Your estate is entitled to a charitable deduction for the amount of the gift. Retirement plans, financial accounts, and insurance policies provide opportunities for naming Earthwatch as a beneficiary.
GIFTS OF STOCK AND SECURITIES
Earthwatch gratefully accepts gifts in the form of stocks and securities. This can be a simple way to make a lasting gift to Earthwatch.
Endowment gifts are an excellent way to ensure that your commitment to Earthwatch is ever-lasting. Investing in our endowment ensures that Earthwatch will be able to continue fighting for our threatened habitats and cultures for as long as there is a need. By supporting Earthwatch with an endowment gift, you are investing the principal of your gift in reserved Earthwatch funds. We use the interest from this important vehicle to support yearly needs.
