CEC is committed to creating a more resilient and just region in the face of climate change. Through our work with the Central Coast Climate Justice Network and elsewhere, our vision includes an end to racial injustices and their resulting environmental inequities.

The Livable World Legacy Society honors generous and visionary donors who have included a gift to CEC in their will, trust, or estate plan.

Born in the wake of the calamitous 1969 Santa Barbara Oil Spill, CEC is proud of a 50-year record of pioneering achievements in environmental protection and stewardship. Over the decades, CEC has focused its efforts ever more urgently on the existential threat of climate change, and the narrowing window for taking effective action. The moral challenge of our time is to ensure that future generations will inherit from us a livable world.

CEC is laser-focused on this mission. To succeed, it needs the support of all members of our community who share CEC’s vision and profound commitment. Members of the Livable World Legacy Society are foremost among these visionary supporters. They leave a legacy that outlives them in years and generations.

Estate gifts of any size are eligible for membership in the Livable World Legacy Society. As a member of the legacy society you will receive:

  • recognition in all printed and electronic publications featuring the Honor Roll of the Society (unless you wish to remain anonymous);
  • invitations to exclusive events for the CEC leadership circle;
  • a framed certificate of membership.

Your greatest satisfaction will be in the knowledge that you are leaving a lasting legacy in support of the most important cause of our times.

Please consider joining the distinguished members of the Livable World Legacy Society!

Becoming a member of the Livable World Legacy Society is as easy as making a phone call, sending a note, or sending an email to let us know that you are interested in exploring options for making a legacy gift, or to let us know that you have provided for CEC in your estate.
