RMEF Giving Programs

Did you know that you can do more for RMEF than simply writing a check? By working with our expert development officers, RMEF can help you find the way to leave the largest impact on elk country.

Learn more about a variety of giving programs below and contact one of our development officers today.

WORKPLACE GIVING

Many employers will match your donation to the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation if they have a matching gift program, in most cases dollar for dollar. Look for the RMEF listing in the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) or other workplace giving programs. Contact your company’s personnel office for the correct application form and return the completed application to RMEF for processing.

STOCKS/BONDS

You may be able to gift appreciated securities, avoiding paying capital gains tax that would otherwise be due if you sold these assets.

DONOR ADVISED FUNDS

Recommend your gift to RMEF. This is a popular and fast growing way to give. Giving through your DAF is easy. Simply contact your sponsoring financial or community institution to recommend a grant to RMEF.

IRA CHARITABLE ROLLOVER

If you are 70 ½ or older, an IRA charitable rollover gift is a tax-wise way to support RMEF without paying income taxes on the withdrawal. Donations count toward your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD).

RMEF’S ENDOWMENT

The principal from all gifts to the endowment is permanently invested. Up to 5 percent of the corpus will be used for mission accomplishment while the balance of the earnings will be reinvested. This will ensure the endowment continually grows. Contact us today to learn how to participate in this program.

Include RMEF in Your Future Plans

Do you dream of leaving a world behind for your future generations to enjoy and experience in the same way that you have? Including the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation in your plans for the future will create a significant and long-lasting impact for elk and all those who roam in elk country. Your commitment to RMEF will make a difference, allowing the next generation to feel the crisp breeze on their face, hear the rustle of leaves from the trees, and walk the lands that you helped preserve as part of your legacy.

Wills and Living Trusts

Making provisions within your will or trust is perhaps the most significant commitment that one can make for the future of elk, other wildlife, and the habitat they depend on. Simply include language that reflects either a percentage of your estate, amount, or specific asset to bequeath to RMEF.

Name RMEF as a Beneficiary

Lasting Legacy

In 1987, Lee Gamble found a mission that was a perfect match for him. In 2013, Verni found the perfect match in Lee. You can ready about their story and how they are leaving a lasting legacy for elk country in the Mar/Apr issue of Bugle magazine or by clicking the link below.

Memorials and Honorarium

Donate in memorium or honorarium to remember or honor a loved ones through the permanent gift of wildlife habitat. Your donation will help conserve and enhance vital elk habitat throughout North America. When you support the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, you are helping to ensure that elk have the habitat they need to thrive. You are also helping to continue our hunting traditions, for you and your friends, for your kids and their kids.

A personalized letter will be sent to the family contact notifying them that the memorial/Honorarium has been established and in which issue of Bugle the Memorial/Honorarium will appear.
