If you make a donation of $25.00 or more, you will become a Mono Lake Committee member (if you'd rather not be a member, just let us know).


We gratefully accept bequests and endowments. The following example of general bequest language may be helpful (this is not legal advice; please consult an attorney): "I give and bequeath to the Mono Lake Committee, Highway 395 & 3rd Street, Lee Vining, CA 93541, the sum of $____ to be used as its board of directors determines." Other options include: instructing the Committee to invest your bequest with the income only to be used as the board of directors determines; leaving a specific percentage of the value of your estate; and leaving the residue of your estate after you have provided for family members and other beneficiaries. We encourage you to seek advice from an attorney or financial planner. You may discover that a charitable bequest can provide tax savings or other benefits. And you may find that you can make a more significant gift to Mono Lake through your estate than you ever thought possible in your lifetime. Individuals who have included the Mono Lake Committee in their estate plans are recognized in perpetuity in the Friends of Mono Lake Forever. Each year, the Friends of Mono Lake Forever are listed in the Mono Lake Committee's Annual Report (we also honor requests for anonymity). Please contact us for more information.
