Legacy Giving

By including the East Coast Greenway Alliance in your will or estate plans, you have a significant role in completing and maintaining the Greenway

Legacy giving provides the East Coast Greenway with a strong base of future support. Please consider making a commitment which will contribute to the long-term sustainability of the Greenway.

Add the East Coast Greenway Alliance to your existing will or create a new will using this free resource from our partners at Freewill. 

Do you have an IRA, 401(k), life-insurance policy, or any other assets not included in your will? If so, these are called non-probate assets and you must plan your beneficiaries for them separately. Use this online tool to make your plans and designate us as a beneficiary of one or more of these assets. 

The East Coast Greenway Alliance also can accept donations of cash and publicly traded securities. Please contact us if you are considering other types of legacy gifts. 

By making a provision in your will for the East Coast Greenway Alliance, you join the Legacy Giving Circle, our legacy society, and will be recognized by the Alliance. Allowing the East Coast Greenway Alliance to publicly recognize your generosity helps encourage others to invest; however, you may remain anonymous if you so choose.

For more information about legacy giving contact our Donor Relations Manager, Mary T. Rahe, via email at mary@greenway.org.

If you already include the East Coast Greenway in your estate planning, please let us know by using this form so we can acknowledge your support!
