Leave a Lasting legacy

Planned Giving / Estate Planning


Please consider the Mill Creek MetroParks Foundation when planning your estate and retirement. A planned gift to the foundation's  Endowment Fund will provide for lasting care of care of Mill Creek MetroParks. Your gift can either be designated for particular areas of the MetroParks or can be used for within the general endowment fund. 

Named Endowments: While gifts in any amount can be contributed toward endowment funds, contributions of $100,000 or more qualify for naming an endowment. 

Planned and estate gifts to the Mill Creek MetroPaks Foundation can take several forms: 


One of the simplest and most common ways of making a planned gift is through a will or a living trust.  The reason so many people include charitable gifts in their estate plan is the flexibility of bequests. You can give a specific amount of money or a particular asset, such as stocks or real property, or a percentage of the remainder of your estate after your other bequests, debts and taxes are paid. This enables you to take care of your family first before the Mill Creek MetroParks Foundation receives anything.
