Planned Giving

In 1967, Oregon Governor Tom McCall signed the landmark Oregon Beach Bill, ensuring public access to all of Oregon’s beaches. At North Coast Land Conservancy, we are inspired by Governor McCall and the citizens of Oregon who had the courage to make a bold plan for the future of the coast. We are honored to build upon that legacy. We are inspired by a vision of the Oregon Coast as a place where healthy communities of people, plants and wildlife all thrive.

Plan for the future

Planning ahead is the key to achievement of this vision. Making a planned gift to NCLC allows you to achieve both your philanthropic and financial planning goals, providing you or someone you designate with favorable financial and/or tax breaks while helping North Coast Land Conservancy fulfill important stewardship goals for the Oregon Coast.

Our promise

When we make the commitment to care for land in perpetuity, we know that we can only fulfill that promise if we continue to exist and function at our highest level. We invite you to invest in the stewardship of the Oregon Coast by including NCLC in your estate plans. Working together, we can keep the unique legacy of the Oregon Coast alive for future generations.
