Gift Planning:
Supporting the Sierra Club Family

Today, with over 1.3 million members and supporters, Sierra Club volunteers and donors have provided a solid base of support for turning environmental dreams and goals into reality. Sierra Club's early vision of protecting the environment extends not only across the United States but also around the world.

The Sierra Club's environmental activities are supported by membership dues and by contributions. This support helps ensure the Sierra Club will have the financial resources to carry on its environmental activities well into the future. Individuals or organizations wishing to make a gift may make contributions to the Sierra Club or to The Sierra Club Foundation.
