Lakes Legacy Club

Leave a lasting legacy for your lakes through gift and estate planning.

  • Join the Lakes Legacy Club by including TWF in your planned giving.

    Gift and estate planning is one of the most powerful ways to support the protection of our local land, lakes, and streams from pollution, now and for the future.

    When you include TWF in your planned giving, you may be able to save on taxes, receive income for life, or enjoy other financial benefits — all while ensuring your love for the lakes is honored long after your lifetime.

    To discuss the legacy gift that is right for you, please contact Executive Director Lyn Crighton at 574-834-3242 or email

    All inquiries are completely confidential and at no obligation.

Please consult your financial and legal advisor before making a particular planned gift.

If you have already included The Watershed Foundation in your estate plan, please let us know so we can thank you and ensure your generous gift is used as intended.
