Legacy Membership

We all must leave this earth, but the earth itself endures.

If you want to see the river, its waters, parks, trails, wildlife and adjoining farmland cared for beyond your lifetime, consider making a planned gift to the Eno River Association to become a Legacy Member.

Becoming a Legacy Member is as easy as notifying us of your planned gift intentions. Providing a gift in your estate plans can include naming the Eno River Association as beneficiary of the following:

  • Will
  • Retirement Plan
  • Living Trust
  • Donor Advised Fund
  • Life Insurance Policy
  • Charitable Remainder Trust
  • Charitable Lead Trust
  • Remainder Gift of Real Estate
  • Any other gift that benefits the Eno River Association in the future

Learn more about each of these gift types or review some sample language to take to your attorney.

In addition to ensuring the Eno River flows for generations to come, Legacy Members receive special invitations, recognition, and benefits. Even if you prefer to remain anonymous, informing us of your intention ensures that we can plan for the future, and steward your gift in the ways you intended.

Contact our office if you need additional information, would like a list of estate planners in the area, or to alert us to your planned gift: Emily Hill, Director of Development 919-748-2126 or emily@enoriver.org.
