Leaving a Legacy
A trip to the Great Bear Rainforest helped ignite Jeri Isbell’s passion for nature and inspired a charitable bequest.
In June 2013, I was invited to travel to the Great Bear Rainforest with a group from Nature United’s global affiliate—and I immediately fell in love. Being out on the land was not a big part of my upbringing, so having the opportunity to see this landscape and to meet the people there first-hand was truly a life-changing experience.
What really resonated with me was your science-based approach and focus on working with First Nations to make a lasting and positive difference. Great Bear holds a special place in my heart and learning about your work there, and around the world, inspired me to get involved in conservation. This journey has led me to make a lasting commitment to nature through a legacy gift designated to Canada among other programs.
My unrestricted gift reflects my trust in this organization, and I want my support to be used where it’s needed most so that future generations—including my children and grandchildren—have the clean air and heathy lands and waters they need to thrive.
Have you already made a gift through your will, retirement plan, or insurance policy for the future of nature? If so, please let us know your plans so we can thank you and welcome you to The Legacy Club.
