Support the Important Work of CEC with a Legacy Gift

Welcome!

Thank you for your interest in learning about the many benefits of building a long term legacy by designating a charitable gift to CEC in your estate plan.

For five decades, CEC has created, promoted, and implemented effective solutions to environmental challenges, particularly the existential threat of climate change. CEC is a community-based and community-focused organization that provides regional and state-wide leadership.

Through a gift in your estate plan, you can join the visionary founders of CEC in supporting this extraordinary organization by establishing a long term legacy for the benefit of future generations. Some types of estate gifts also provide tangible tax benefits to donors during their lifetime.
