How Will You Be Remembered?

Heritage Oak Society

Many people wish to make a difference that will last in perpetuity.  The Heritage Oak Society of The TREE Fund provides a meaningful way of recognizing those individuals now for gifts that will become effective in the future. By including the TREE Fund in their estate plans members of the Heritage Oak Society help to sustain the urban forests of the future, Heritage Oak Society members are underwriters of discovery, funding the answers to questions not yet asked.

You can create a lasting legacy through a will, living trust, charitable remainder trust, charitable gift annuity, insurance policy or qualified retirement plan.  The TREE Fund’s role is to receive, administer and provide ongoing stewardship of estate gifts to endure that its donors’ intentions are honored. Your tax attorney and estate planning professional should be consulted when considering a legacy gift to the TREE Fund.

We thank those who wish to be recognized as members of the Heritage Oak Society, and those who wish to remain anonymous, for their generosity and forethought.

Online applications for the $100,000 TREE Fund Research Fellowship Grant are due Nov. 3.

The Robert Felix Memorial Scholarship was tremendously helpful, enabling me to focus on my studies in Landscape Horticulture at Ohio State. Now I am enjoying success at Madison Tree Care & Landscaping, Inc. I feel extremely fortunate to have been awarded this scholarship and to be in such an important industry for our world. Thank you TREE Fund!
