Support CEC’s Critical Climate Work with a Legacy Gift
Thank you for your interest in building a long-term legacy by designating a charitable gift to CEC in your estate plan.
Born from the traumatic experience of the 1969 Santa Barbara oil spill, CEC is a community-based and community-focused organization that provides regional and state-wide leadership on maintaining a healthy environment and preserving a livable world for future generations.
For five decades, CEC has created, promoted, and implemented effective solutions to environmental challenges. Today our work centers on advancing rapid and equitable solutions to the climate crisis – including ambitious zero carbon goals, drawdown of excess carbon, and protection against the impacts of climate change. By leaving a gift in your estate plan, you can join the visionary founders of CEC in establishing a long term legacy for the benefit of future generations.
Below, we offer information and personal stories to help you see the many options for making an estate gift, including how some provide tangible tax benefits to donors during their lifetime.
If you have questions or want guidance on how you can best benefit from a planned gift, please call CEC’s Legacy Giving Consultant, Karl Hutterer, at (805) 453-8162 or email [email protected]. He will happily provide additional information with no obligation.
