Many Generous Ways to Support EAC’s Important Environmental Work:

Sustaining Membership: Becoming a sustaining member is a great way to support EAC all year long! Sustaining members agree to regular monthly payments of at least $10, or $30 per quarter, via credit card. Sustaining memberships provide the financial backbone for EAC’s work by ensuring regular income that gives us more time to engage in important work rather than fundraising.

Gift Memberships: Give a gift membership to a friend for a birthday or special occasion.

Donations in memory: Honor a friend or loved one by making a donation to EAC in his or her memory. EAC will send a letter to you and the person you designate to inform them of your memorial gift.

Legacies & Bequests: You can make a lasting contribution to the preservation of West Marin by including EAC in your estate planning. There are several ways to leave a gift. Many people leave a charitable gift in a will or living trust. You can set aside a specific dollar amount or leave a percentage of your estate or any assets left over after the family has been provided for. Another option is to name EAC as the beneficiary or contingent beneficiary of life insurance policies, funds from a savings or retirement account, or appreciated assets.

Gifts of stock, mutual funds, or other appreciated assets: A gift of stock, mutual funds, real estate or other appreciated assets can be an advantageous way to give. For example, you can donate a gift of stock without having to convert it to cash first, thus avoiding capital gains tax.

Matching Gifts: Many businesses offer to match the gifts workers make to nonprofit groups. If your employer matches gifts, you can double your support for West Marin. Please ask your personnel or community relations office for more information and matching gift forms.

Give to EAC’s fund at the Marin Community Foundation. The West Marin Environmental Action Fund is a Designated Beneficiary Fund at the Marin Community Foundation. The fund supports EAC’s work to protect West Marin and is able to accept cash, securities, bequests, retirement plan assets and life insurance. For more information, contact EAC.

Your ongoing partnership with EAC is tremendously important to West Marin. EAC is the only region-wide environmental watchdog in West Marin with an office and staff. In the absence of local government in our unincorporated area, EAC plays an essential role in ensuring that county, state, and federal governments hear our environmental voice about policy and permit decisions.
