As 2017 comes to a close, we are excited to be establishing a formal Planned Giving Program at REEF. Over the years, we have received several legacy gifts, which have been used to fund programs, acquire property, and provide opportunities to conduct important research projects. Estate gifts transform our organization and are an excellent way of creating a lasting memorial.
We are honored that Board of Trustee members, Ned and Anna DeLoach, have included REEF in their giving plans.
“As Ned and I set out to plan our estate, we wanted to be sure to not only provide for our children’s future needs, but also to ensure the long-term sustainability of the organization we helped form, Reef Environmental Education Foundation.
We cannot begin to describe the many personal relationships we have cultivated, the adventures we have experienced, and the accomplishments we’ve witnessed, as we helped REEF grow and prosper. So, when it came down to creating our legacy, it was only natural that we chose to include REEF in our estate plan.”
