How to Make a Difference

Looking Out for Tomorrow, With a Planned Gift Today

For conservation to stand the test of time, we need to connect people from all walks of life to the special places of the Bitterroot Valley–and you can make that happen.

Perhaps you’d like to help the Bitter Root Land Trust in a more significant way, but feel you cannot make a substantial gift today. When you leave a gift through your will to Bitter Root  Land Trust, your vision for the future of this valley lives on. You can ensure farms and ranches are conserved, wildlife thrive, and the young people of the Bitterroot Valley put down their tablets or phones and connect to the natural world in meaningful ways.

Join a growing number of people who are making a greater impact that goes beyond this lifetime. A gift through your will or trust will conserve the clean, cold waters of the valley’s rivers and creeks, preserve its working farms and ranches, and change the lives of many for generations to come.

Perhaps you’ve thought, “I don’t have that kind of money,” or ” I don’t have that much land.”  Or maybe you’re not sure where to start.  The good news is it’s easy to start a conversation about your vision for the future–and how conservation can help achieve it.

There are many options and types of planned gifts for you to consider.  Feel free to contact Gavin Ricklefs, Executive Director, with your inquiries.  He can be reached by phone at (406) 375-0956 or by email at for confidential discussions related to planned giving options.

Coming soon!  A helpful Planned Giving brochure will be available for you.
