Leave a Legacy

“Friends of the Inyo has been the prime non-profit to protect our public lands through leadership, policy and stewardship. It is important for us to keep that legacy going through time by including it in our trust to ensure sustainability for the organization and the land.”

-Sydney Quinn and Dennis Schumacher, Board of Directors

“I can think of nothing better to do with my estate than to ensure that the vast landscapes and wild denizens of the Eastern Sierra are protected and nurtured for the enjoyment and admiration of all.”

-Chris Lizza, President Board of Directors

“My spouse and I are in our 40’s, and it took us a long time to get a will and trust in place. We give what we can to public interest organizations now, so it makes sense to do that as a final act in life. Designating a legacy gift to a cause like that of Friends of the Inyo feels really good, even if it will take decades to come to fruition.”

-Ellen Wehr, Board of Directors

“For many years now, the High Country of the Eastern Sierra has served as a personal space of replenishment and rejuvenation. Friends of the Inyo’s mission to preserve and conserve these lands is truly a legacy that my wife and I are honored to contribute to.”

-Paul & Marjorie Shock, Treasurer & Board Member
