Legacy Gifts

Create your legacy of healthy wild salmon rivers.

For almost 30 years, Wild Salmon Center has worked to conserve the North Pacific’s last, best wild salmon and steelhead rivers. Our goal is to permanently safeguard these extraordinary watersheds today — before they’re irreparably damaged.

Making a bequest to WSC, or designating us as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy or retirement plan, are meaningful ways to show your commitment to the rivers and forests that mean the most to you. They are gifts that costs nothing today but have a considerable impact for wild salmon and steelhead strongholds for generations to come. 

To learn more—or to tell us about your existing estate plans—contact Kim Kosa at (971) 255-5562 or kkosa@wildsalmoncenter.org, or download our Planned Giving brochure.


Ready to get started with a Bequest? Just contact your financial adviser and provide our sample bequest language.

WSC has also partnered with FreeWill to provide a free online tool that guides you through the process of creating a will in 20 minutes or less, using our unique link for WSC supporters. This tool is cost-free whether or not you choose to include a bequest to WSC, and can be used to create a fully valid legal will or guide you through initial planning before finding a lawyer near you.
