Our supporters are active throughout the year and choose to give in many ways. Two simple ways to give are to make a one-time gift or schedule a monthly gift.
If you’re looking for other options for giving to support Sky Island Alliance, below are some of the ways we can accept gifts. If you’re interested in talking to someone about these or any planned giving, please contact Development Director Amy Amoroso at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Naming Sky Island Alliance as a Retirement Plan Beneficiary
Retirement plan gifts are an easy way to make a planned gift, and you can simply name Sky Island Alliance as a beneficiary on your plan’s beneficiary designation form. Most retirement plans (other than Roth IRAs) are subject to income taxes or estate taxes if left to an individual. However, a charity as a beneficiary does not pay income or estate taxes on the distribution. This way you are assured the full value of your gift will be used by our non-profit organization.
To name Sky Island Alliance as a beneficiary, obtain a designation form from your IRA plan administrator. Or contact Amy Amoroso, Development Director at firstname.lastname@example.org to help you facilitate that type of transaction.
Gifts of Legacy
We hope you’ll consider including a gift to Sky Island Alliance in your will or living trust. Remembering Sky Island Alliance in your will or trust plans is a powerful and lasting way to ensure long-term conservation success. By making plans today, you and your family may receive tax benefits, and you are leaving a wild legacy – for generations to come.
Please consult with your legal/financial advisor on making estate plans. You may wish to bring the following suggested language for your planning:

Tax ID # 86-0796748
