We gratefully accept one-time donations of any amount. The Mono Lake Committee is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. 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.
We gratefully accept gifts in memory of friends and family who have passed away. Memorial gifts are acknowledged in the quarterly Mono Lake Newsletter. We are still working on secure means of accepting gifts online, so please contact us.
If your company has a matching gifts program, you can double your support by participating! Contact your corporate HR department to find out.
