“Watching nature’s intricate systems work together in harmony is always something that makes me feel grounded. I’ve spent much of my life exploring our beautiful forests, deserts and coast lines. From where I grew up, in Maine to California, where I reside now. I’m grateful that people of all ages, abilities and income levels have access to public lands and can enjoy their beauty.”

Your Legacy, Mother Earth's Future

Broads Legacy Circle is a special group of forward-thinking members who have opted to sustain our work to protect wilderness and wildlands through their will or trust.

Bequests

There are several options. You can designate a specific amount, or give a percentage or the remainder of your estate to Great Old Broads.

IRA/Retirement Plans

These assets often carry an income tax burden if paid to a beneficiary, but not if paid to a tax-exempt organization.

Stocks, Bonds, and Mutual Funds

Even if stocks have appreciated greatly, you can claim a charitable deduction for the full market value and reduce your income tax liability.

Join the Broads Legacy Circle simply by letting us know about your commitment to include Great Old Broads for Wilderness in your will, trust, or other estate plans.

The Wilderness Defense Fund Endowment

Through a generous $100,000 gift, the Pope family established Broads’ first-ever endowment, the Wilderness Defense Fund.

Its purpose is to increase our capacity to initiate legal actions, arbitration, or mediation to protect the integrity of Wilderness.

The Pope family intends to build the endowment to $1 million over ten years, and Broads will draw annual income from these permanently invested funds to defend existing wilderness.

Give to the Endowment

We extend our gratitude to the Pope family for helping us ensure that wilderness areas are protected from “an increasing population, accompanied by expanding settlement and growing mechanization”—exactly as the authors of the Wilderness Act intended.

Clem Pope at work in the wilderness.

“Our father was a forester and mom an avid birdwatcher, so we grew up outside. As a young woman, my sister Ann owned three bush planes, filed a land claim, and built a log cabin in a remote part of Alaska,” shares Art Pope. As for his other siblings, he said, “Lyn worked at an Alaskan fishing lodge and became a permanent Alaskan resident. Gale works in range management for the Forest Service and is active in her local Backcountry Horseman chapter. I founded Northwest Youth Corps, an organization dedicated to getting youth and young adults into the backcountry. Our eldest brother Clem Pope served over 45 years as a wilderness ranger, animal packer, and Wilderness Program Manager in Idaho’s Selway-Bitterroot and Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness areas, and taught us all to appreciate the importance and fragility of Wilderness. Last fall, Clem’s two daughters continued this passion, completing a 12-day cross-country hike across the Frank Church.”
