Make your legacy a clean and healthy Alaska

When you choose Trustees for Alaska in your will or estate planning, you help shape Alaska’s future.

A legacy gift will carry your values forward, and help protect Alaska’s lands, waters, wildlife and people for generations to come.

Read about how John Studebaker and his daughter Stacy used legacy giving to carry forward their love of nature.

Leaving a legacy gift doesn’t require great wealth, just a desire to make a lasting impact.

Alaska will always need good lawyers and I
want to make sure that Alaska has the very best
lawyers long after I’m gone… That is why I
have made Trustees part of my legacy.

We fight to stop the proposed Pebble mine to protect Bristol Bay waters, salmon fisheries, communities, and ways of life.

We fight to keep oil and gas drilling out of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, and preventing more fossil fuel exploitation in the Western Arctic, to safeguard the health of people, caribou, birds, polar bears and a vast array of wildlife.

We fight to stop the industrialization of public lands and to take climate action by reducing the carbon pollution that causing coastal
erosion, sea ice loss, extreme floods and wildfires, and fish and animal die-offs.

We promote biodiversity and healthy wildlife habitat.

We defend people’s rights to clean water, clean air, and access to
healthy and traditional foods.

I named Trustees as a beneficiary in my will
because of their deep and abiding commitment
to protecting Alaska’s lands, waters, wildlife
and people now and for the future.
