Other Ways to Help
• Planned Giving
Planned giving offers a flexible way to contribute to the conservation of orangutans. By including the Orangutan Conservancy (OC) in your will or estate plan, you can help leave a legacy that will protect the orangutan into the future. Charitable bequests in your will or revocable living trust carry out your wishes for distributing assets to the cause you have supported during your lifetime. Charitable bequests can eliminate or reduce federal estate tax. If you wish to include OC in your estate plan, please
The legal language for wills and estate plans is as follows: “The Orangutan Conservancy, a nonprofit corporation, organized and existing under the laws of the State of Colorado, and with principal business address in Los Angeles, California.”
Fundraisers are easy! Even if you don’t have money to donate to the Orangutan Conservancy (OC), you can use your creativity and a little of your time, and raise a bit of money to help orangutans. How about a neighborhood yard sale? A bake sale? Rent yourself out as maid for a day? Draw the attention of friends and relatives to this situation and enlist their support. Maybe your local Girl Scout troop or church group would like to be involved. OC is happy to brainstorm with you about ideas.
The Orangutan Conservancy (OC) is always looking for people to help with ongoing projects. OC is comprised primarily of volunteers, so every person that steps forward is useful. OC can always use writing/editing assistance, brochure/flyer design, websurfers, fundraisers, grantwriters, etc.
Please note: At this time it is not possible to volunteer at any of the projects OC supports in Indonesia or Malaysia.
