Build a Lasting Legacy

To Preserve and Sustain

My legacy will live on to inspire future generations. ~ Germany Kent, author and journalist

Make an investment in future of the Dude Ranch Foundation. By making a planned gift to the Dude Ranch Foundation, you recognize the extraordinary value of the Foundation today and for the generations to come.

More than ever, the Dude Ranch Foundation is making an exceptional impact in advancing the global knowledge of the dude ranch industry and importance of environmental conservation. To do this the Dude Ranch Foundation needs a strong endowment that will provide a stable source of income and allow the Dude Ranch Foundation to plan for its future. A planned gift, or bequest, becomes a permanent legacy and provides benefits to the Dude Ranch Foundation year after year, generation after generation. Your gift of any size will help support the future of the Dude Ranch Foundation.

You can plan today to make a gift of estate assets to ensure that your charitable interests are supported, your financial objectives are maximized, and to leave a legacy at the Dude Ranch Foundation (DRF). Some creative and flexible options that can benefit you and the Foundation include:

  • Charitable Lead Trusts
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
  • Gifts and Bequests of Retirement Assets
  • Stock/Appreciated Securities
  • Wills and Living Trusts
  • Real Estate Gifts

Planned gifts of collections or artifacts are also important, as they build the collection for the future.

You may benefit by:

  • Making a more significant gift than might otherwise be possible
  • Receiving charitable deductions
  • Avoiding capital gains
  • Reducing your estate taxes
  • Increasing your cash flow
  • Passing on your family values and sustaining a legacy through the Dude Ranch Foundation
