Ways of Giving
Gifts of Cash
An outright gift of cash is the simplest and most common way to donate to the Wyoming Outdoor Council. Because the Council is a nonprofit organization, you can deduct the entire gift amount from your yearly income taxes, up to 50 percent of your adjusted gross income.

One of the most advantageous ways to contribute to the Wyoming Outdoor Council is through a gift of stock. Making a gift of securities is simple and offers a number of valuable financial benefits:
- You can donate appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual fund.
- The total value of the stock upon transfer is tax-deductible.
- There is no obligation to pay any capital gains taxes on the appreciation.
PLEASE NOTE: It is important that you contact us when you make a transfer to ensure that we can identify the incoming shares as a gift from you. Please let us know your name and contact information, intended date of transfer, type of stock, and number of shares.

Bequests and Planned gifts
Planned gifts provide the resources needed to protect Wyoming’s natural heritage and preserve the future of the Wyoming Outdoor Council.
The work of the Wyoming Outdoor Council depends upon your goodwill. To that end, there are a myriad of easy giving options from which you can choose – from naming us as a beneficiary in your will, to designating the Outdoor Council as the beneficiary of your life insurance policy or structuring a life income gift with a trust arrangement.
Many people include the Wyoming Outdoor Council in their wills or other estate plans, but don’t always tell us they’ve done so. If you decide to remember the Wyoming Outdoor Council in your will, or if you already have, please let us know. We’d like the opportunity to thank you. We’d also like to welcome you to the Wyoming Legacy Society, which honors and recognizes individuals who make a commitment to Wyoming’s environment by including the Outdoor Council in their estate plans or by establishing some other deferred gift.
For more information about bequests and other deferred gifts please contact: Gary Wilmot, associate director, 307.332.7031 x21 or firstname.lastname@example.org
