How to Give


There are many ways you can give to help protect the Boundary Waters.



GIVE ONLINE

To make a gift with a credit or debit card, please visit our donation page.



WRITE A CHECK

You can make your check out to "Save the Boundary Waters" and send it to:

Save the Boundary Waters
P.O. Box 625
Ely, MN 55731



BECOME A SUSTAINER

To make a recurring gift, please visit our Campaign Sustainer page. You can select the duration of your recurring contribution, or you can contact us whenever you would like it to end.



GIVE THROUGH YOUR EMPLOYER

You can help protect the Boundary Waters by giving to the Campaign through payroll deductions or by participating in your employer's matching gift program. Don't know if your employer has a matching gift program? Simply ask and your contribution could be doubled! You will then receive a matching gift form. From there, fill out your portion, send it to us, and we will do the rest.

Did you know? Many employers will also match gifts even if you are now retired.



GIVE THROUGH YOUR WILL

If you are interested in giving through your will or estate planning, please contact Carter Sample.



IRA CHARITABLE ROLLOVER

If you have an IRA and are 70 1/2 years old or older, you can take advantage of a simple way to protect the Boundary Waters without it costing you more. With an IRA Charitable Rollover, you can give up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to Save the Boundary Waters without having to pay the federal income tax that would otherwise be owed.

If you're interested in making your gift today, you can use this sample letter to request a direct charitable distribution from an individual retirement account.



RECOMMEND THE CAMPAIGN TO YOUR DONOR ADVISED FUND

Please remember to name Save the Boundary Waters or Northeastern Minnesotans for Wilderness a successor beneficiary to your donor advised fund to ensure that your gift supports our work. For more information, please contact Ingrid Lyons.



GIVE THROUGH MUTUAL FUND SHARES OR STOCKS
