Legacy Planning

The Watershed Society

The success of our mission is greatly dependent on the generosity and engagement of our members.  It is only with your continued support that we are able to work to preserve the abundance and quality of our water and other natural and cultural resources within the Highlands for generations to come.  Membership in the Watershed Society is open to those who have made long-range commitments of support for the Coalition.  By considering a legacy gift to the Coalition, you become part of a heritage that has, and will continue to, help protect this pivotal region, the New Jersey Highlands, from continuing urban sprawl and ill-conceived and poorly planned development and the resulting degradation of its vital natural and cultural resources

There are many ways to incorporate NJHC into your financial and estate planning:

  • A Bequest by will or living trust
  • A gift of a life insurance policy
  • A gift of retirement plan assets
  • A charitable gift annuity
  • A charitable remainder trust
  • A charitable Lead Trust

By supporting the New Jersey Highlands Coalition with a planned gift, your membership in the Watershed Society helps assure the financial strength of the organization, enabling the Coalition to safeguard and defend this critical region.  Your tax-free charitable donation assures the Coalition the financial resources that allow us to strengthen operations and grow. For more information on how you can create a legacy of support and protection for this wonderful geographic region of our state on which so many depend for clean drinking water, please contact Julia Somers at 973 588-7190 or Julia@njhighlandscoalition.org.
