Planned Giving

Planned Gifts Help Preserve this Vital Western Institution

Planned gifts can offer advantages to help you to meet your overall financial goals, enhance the value of your estate and help High Country News achieve long-term financial sustainability. They can also provide special opportunities that enable the organization to strengthen and improve its programs. You can make a big impact with a future gift:

  • Gifts of stock or other assets
  • IRA distributions
  • Donor Advised Funds (DAFs)
  • A bequest in your will (you can create your own will here for free!)
  • A beneficiary designation on a life insurance policy, 401(k) plan or IRA
  • Life income gifts
  • Charitable lead trusts

We are happy to answer any questions you have or work with you and your financial or tax adviser to establish the planned gift that is most appropriate for you. Our communication with you about planned giving is strictly confidential and without obligation to you. For more information download our planned giving guide. Or contact us via email or phone: 800.905.1155.


High Country News continues my work and my vision of providing the best information possible about this place we all care so much about. I would like to see it carry on that vision long after I am gone.”
