Give - Charles River Watershed Association

Estate and Planned Giving

With your planned gift to CRWA, you’ll make the biggest impact by ensuring future generations benefit from one of New England’s most precious natural resources.

Bequests are critical because they allow CRWA to respond to needs as they change over time. You can designate a planned gift to CRWA and benefit by saving federal estate taxes, by donating in the form of cash, stock, and/or tangible property. 

For more information on making a bequest to CRWA, please contact Nishaila Porter.
