Planned Giving

We’re able to enjoy all that Pennsylvania Elk Country has to offer because of the generosity of those that came before us. In turn, it’s important that we give back so that our children and grandchildren can also enjoy and appreciate this special place.

A Planned gift is one of the most impactful ways you can support the Keystone Elk Country Alliance. You don’t have to be wealthy to make a significant gift to KECA. We hope you will consider leaving a gift to us in your will or trust after you have considered your family, heirs, church and others that are important to you.

Leaving a gift to the Keystone Elk Country Alliance can be done by beneficiary designation, in your will, charitable gift annuities, gifts of life insurance or retirement plan assets, charitable remainder trusts, gifts of real estate or other real assets and memorials. In some instances, planned gifts can protect your assets, provide for your family and guarantee you income for life without interruption to your current cash flow.

Anyone who makes a commitment of a planned gift will become members of the Keystone Elk Society and will be recognized annually in our publications and will also be invited to special events. In addition, those individuals and couples, who make a gift through their will or estate valued at $10,000 or more will receive a special numbered limited edition  Pennsylvania Elk Society collector’s pin.  More importantly, you will be recognized for helping to sustain a future that Pennsylvania will always have Elk as part of its natural history.

It’s easy to affirm your commitment to Pennsylvania Elk Country by including KECA in your will. We have legal professionals available to provide free consultation in planning your will.
