Want to help save the planet? One quarter of The Nature Conservancy’s funding comes from supporters who have named our organization a beneficiary of their estate plans. Many long-time donors make a gift in their will or trust to their favorite charities to ensure that the work they believe in will continue beyond their lifetime. The Conservancy considers these donors an important part of our “family” and invests the funds from these gifts in critical work to conserve lands and waters around the world for future generations. Join our team in a new initiative to build a meaningful stewardship and cultivation program for our loyal donors and help raise even more of these gifts critical to our conservation mission. This opportunity is ideal for someone who is highly motivated, loves interacting with diverse constituencies and supporters, and is interested in joining the world’s leading conservation organization.
