Planned Giving Options:
Meeting Your Charitable and Financial Goals

Planned Giving is a term that refers to setting up a mechanism to make a gift that benefits a charitable organization at some time in the future. No matter how you arrange your planned gift, it will have distinct tax, financial, and charitable benefits. Always consult with your financial adviser.

A charitable gift to the Wood River Land Trust provides for the enduring protection of land, water, and wildlife in the Wood River Valley and surrounding areas.

Create Your Legacy

If you would like to support the Wood River Land Trust’s work and retain control of assets during your lifetime, your solution may be a charitable bequest. A Bequest is the simplest method of Planned Giving. A provision in the donor’s will provides a gift to charity out of the donor’s estate. Leave a conservation legacy.

Use Your IRA for Nature

Did you know that you can now make a distribution from your IRA to the Wood River Land Trust without incurring tax on the withdrawal?

Plan for Tomorrow, Today

Life-income gifts are a smart way to support our work and take care of your financial future as well.

Kingman and Cindy Lambert
Members of the Wood River Land Trust since 2003


King graduated from the University of Virginia after World War II, and then spent 22 years as an aviator in the Marines. After he concluded his military career, he built and managed two tennis facilities in southern California. His top priorities are his wife Cindy, their two daughters and circuit tennis. In 1994, King and Cindy moved to Sun Valley where they reside for the majority of the year; the remaining time they spend in the California desert.

Why King and Cindy named the Wood River Land Trust as a beneficiary of a Charitable Remainder Trust:

“It’s quite obvious. The Land Trust does such a good job in this area, especially with the river.  Being close to the environment in which you live—it’s not only the way you live but what you participate in. The Land Trust understands that. There is no better place to contribute.”
