21st Century Circle

Leave a Legacy for Our Future Trail

Each of us has chosen a trail through life. By becoming a Colorado Mountain Club member, you have made a choice that enhances your enjoyment of our state. You can also make a choice to help future generations of Club members. The 21st Century Circle honors and recognizes those who have designated a legacy gift to the CMC or CMC Foundation in their will or estate plan. Gifts like these are increasingly important to the future of the Colorado Mountain Club.

Consider that only 6% of Americans include charitable bequests in their will, and only 30% will die with a will in place. Without a will, the State decides who receives how much of your legacy, depriving you of the right to ensure your wishes are followed. Gifts do not need to be large in order to make a real difference.

By speaking to your attorney, accountant, or financial advisor to help you, your gift can be used to fund any current CMC program, or help build the CMC endowment. A planned gift can be made by adding the CMC to your will, naming the CMC as a beneficiary of a retirement plan, or by naming the CMC as the beneficiary of a life insurance plan.

While you do have the choice to remain anonymous, we encourage you to notify the CMC of your gift so we can recognize your generosity and help you to direct your future gift. The Club has provided so much for your trail through life. Planned giving helps our trail to go on.
