Preservation League — Making a Lasting Impact

The Preservation League honors those donors who have included Heckrodt Wetland Reserve (HWR) in their estate planning. If you are among those who have included our organization in your estate plans, we wish to express our gratitude by inviting you to become a member of the Preservation League.

Preservation League members are those who:

  • Include HWR in a will
  • Create a charitable gift annuity to benefit HWR
  • Name HWR as a beneficiary in a life insurance policy
  • Name HWR as a beneficiary in a retirement plan
  • Establish a charitable trust to benefit HWR



All those who support Heckrodt Wetland Reserve in their estate plans are eligible for enrollment in the Preservation League, our legacy society. Whether your gift is large or small, you are making an impact on the lives of those around you today, and future generations tomorrow. As a member of the Preservation League, you will receive VIP passes to special events and a commemorative brick in our Memory Patio noting you as a Preservation League Member.

By letting us know that you have left a gift in your estate to the Reserve, you help us to understand what is meaningful to you, and for that we sincerely thank you. It is our pleasure to work with the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region. They are a valued partner that helps us get you the answers you need to any questions related to your gift. If you would like to leave your gift in honor or in memory of a loved one or would like your gift to remain anonymous, we will carry out your request in a personalized way.
