Planned & Legacy Gifts

Planned and Legacy Gifts make you feel great and are a positive reflection of your conservation ethic. These gifts preserve the Connecticut Forest & Park Association's (CFPA’s) future and its ability to be an independent advocate for Connecticut’s forests, parks, trails, and open spaces even during difficult economic periods.

Planned and Legacy Gifts are made during your lifetime and/or as part of your estate planning. Listed on this site are simple explanations of various ways to give to CFPA. As a result of creative planning, you can be generous in supporting CFPA, benefit your family with some techniques, and, in some cases, reduce the impact of taxes at death. Simple ideas include:

  • Giving appreciated securities (contact our office for delivery instructions)
  • Designating CFPA as a beneficiary of your IRA or other retirement plan
  • Naming CFPA as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy
  • Leaving CFPA a bequest in your will

Please inform us if CFPA is named in your estate plan—we’d like to thank you, that’s all!

With select Legacy Gifts, you will have access to naming opportunities and, often, children are pleased when charitable gifts are made in parent’s estates.

The Connecticut Forest & Park Association was recognized as exempt under 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code in April, 1945.

CFPA’s Tax ID # is 06-0613430

We are located at 16 Meriden Road, Rockfall, CT 06481.

Special thanks to John Ivimey and David Sullivan of Reid & Riege and Jim Cama of Cama & Associates for providing support and copy for the site. We suggest you see a professional advisor when creating and implementing your planned giving program.
