Honor Someone Special With a Future Gift in Their Name
If you have a loved one who has been impacted by Save the Redwoods League, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor your loved one or celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday while supporting the work of our mission. Your memorial or tribute gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a difference in the lives of those we serve.
Consider using your gift to dedicate a redwood grove in honor of yourself or a loved one. You can help ensure the future of these magnificent redwood forests and inspire the next generations to visit by dedicating a special place in the forest through your will or trust. The League will work closely with your family members, friends, or the representative of your estate to fulfill your wishes and choose a fitting place in the redwoods.

An Example of How It Works
Redwood Legacy Circle member Henry Timnick wanted to honor his mother Ottilie Schroeter Timnick 1894-2008 (108!). She was a true nature lover and knew every bird and tree. She taught him to smell the roses. She would have been astounded by the redwoods. She had everything expropriated in the Russian Revolution, came to Canada penniless, and taught Henry by her good deeds that "giving" is the greatest gift of all.
When Henry decided to include Save the Redwoods League among the important charities in his will, he knew it was fitting to honor his wonderful mother. Naming a redwood grove allows her spirit to live on when people pass by her grove, and hopefully they will smile when they read her sign, "The Ottilie Timnick Grove: A Mother Like No Other."
