Learn About Lassen Legacy Circle and Planned Giving

Providing a contribution through your estate plans is a lasting and thoughtful way to help the foundation to preserve and protect the park area for future visitors. A planned gift leaves a legacy that celebrates your enjoyment of Lassen Volcanic National Park and the surrounding region.

Planned giving through the Lassen Legacy Circle provides an opportunity for you to leave money and/or assets to the Lassen Park Foundation after your death; or a way to invest money so that you receive benefits during your life and the remaining funds are then bequeathed to the foundation. Assets may include, but are not limited to, real estate, stocks and bonds.

A planned giving gift can be made by a bequest in a will or living trust as well as in a variety of ways that provide tax benefits and income for life to the donor.

Popular ways to make a planned gift include

  • Bequest
  • Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT)
  • Charitable Lead Trust (CLT)
  • Life Insurance Gift
  • Real Estate Gift
  • Retirement Plan Beneficiary Designation


The foundation encourages you to discuss a planned gift with your tax and/or legal advisor for specific information for structuring a gift and then contacting the foundation.

Please join with the Lassen Legacy Circle and help sustain the financial foundation of the Lassen Park Foundation for generations to come.
