Legacy Society

“I made a gift to ADK in my will. It was my way of giving back to an organization that has offered my family and me opportunities to form lasting friendships and to have experiences with people who enjoy wild, open spaces and share efforts to protect them.” — Robert Ringlee

“Our real legacy will be knowing that ADK can use our money to help preserve what we love” – Kathy Elwyn


Protect New York State’s wild lands and waters for future generations with your legacy gift to ADK.

Once you have invested in the places you love, we encourage you to join ADK’s Legacy Society. Members of the Legacy Society have made a commitment to ADK through a bequest or other estate gift and let us know, in writing, that they have done so. Legacy Society members are very special to us and we do not want to miss opportunities to show our appreciation and share ADK news. Some members of the society have taken an additional step to allow us to list their names publicly. Recognition includes having your name engraved on a plaque at ADK headquarters and listed in print and electronic publications. We honor all requests to remain anonymous.

If you have included ADK as a beneficiary of your will, trust, retirement account, or life insurance policy, please tell us about your plans. Contact Karim Becker, ADK Development Director, in any of the following ways.
