Preserving Pisgah National Forest for Future Generations

Over 100 years ago Pisgah National Forest was established by forward-thinking statesmen who loved the great outdoors and wanted it preserved “for the instruction and pleasure of our own and future generations” (Theodore Roosevelt urging Congress to pass the Weeks Act in 1911 authorizing the acquisition of national forests “Pisgah”).

Now, it’s our turn to look ahead to the next 100 years and ask what our legacy will be for the generations that follow.  The Pisgah Conservancy is committed to protecting Pisgah and passing on its rugged beauty and natural wonders.  Our mission is only possible through conservation efforts, the tireless work of volunteers and the generous financial support of those who love Pisgah.

In addition to immediate gifts, there are a number of ways you can support TPC in the future.  Giving through your estate and financial plans can take many forms, but the simplest way to accomplish this is through a gift in your will or living trust.  Gifts through your retirement plans or life insurance are other options.  There are also giving plans that feature income back to you or your loved ones.  Most of these types of gifts feature various tax benefits.  They all, however, have one thing in common:  Each gift makes an impact on Pisgah.

Thank you for your consideration of supporting The Pisgah Conservancy and exploring this site to learn more about planned gifts. If you have additional questions and would like more information, contact us at
