Legacy Giving

We can work with you to build a meaningful plan that can help minimize your taxes and create a lasting legacy.

Gift in Your Will

Leaving a gift in your will to the Wilder Institute/Calgary Zoo can help protect the future of wildlife and wild places. This act of generosity will cost you nothing today, and it can create a conservation legacy that will be felt for years to come.

In addition to helping make the world wilder, a gift in your will to the Wilder Institute/Calgary Zoo will:

  • Create valuable tax advantages which could reduce or eliminate the taxes due on your final return
  • Leave behind a meaningful legacy for others to remember you by
  • Allow you to update your will at any time
  • Give you membership in our Snowy Owl Society and offer many unique and exciting opportunities at the Wilder Institute/Calgary Zoo

If you’re ready to create your legacy with a planned gift to the Wilder Institute/Calgary Zoo, or if you’ve already made arrangements to include us in your will, please let us know.
