Salmonid Restoration Federation

Leave a Legacy Gift

Why give Salmonid Restoration Federation (SRF) a gift from my estate?

Leaving a legacy gift is one of the most meaningful ways to support an organization that shares your values and goals. Remember SRF by offering a gift from your estate to help ensure the continuation and celebration of salmon life and restoration culture on the West Coast.

What type(s) of bequests should I consider?

Percentage: Designates the percentage of your estate that you want distributed to SRF.

Specific: Designates a specific dollar amount or a specific asset to SRF.

Residual: SRF will receive the remainder of your estate, or a designated percentage, after all necessary costs and bequests to others have been satisfied.

Contingent:  Assumes that you want to leave your entire estate to family and friends. However, if you outlive any beneficiary, you can instruct that SRF receives that portion of the estate.
