Giving Circles & Bequests
Our Futures Fund is the fund of Forever Wild's Major Gifts & Bequests program. It is specifically designed to create a 1000yr+ legacy of vast wilderness Shared Earth Reserves to maintain vast stores of carbon, protect ancient cultural markers and conserve incredible biodiversity. Funds are managed with ethical investment and support long-term landscape protection.
The Futures Fund is managed by independent Trustees at the Australian Communities Foundation. Forever Wild also holds a 501(c)3 Fund in the USA.
The Futures Fund offers a number of Gift & Bequest opportunities including 3 tiers of Giving Circles. All Giving Circle contributors and Bequests have their name inscribed on our One Earth Legacy Record and receive a personalized commemoration to mark their contribution.
(includes membership of the Donor Insight Program and exclusive invitations to FW legacy events)

(work with our team to create a gift to suit your circumstances. This Circle includes ‘behind the scenes at our SERs’ and the Donor Insight program is optional)
All gifts to the Futures Fund in Australia and the USA are tax deductible.

Donor Insight Program
A unique part of our Major Gifts & Bequests program is the opportunity to gain deep insights into Forever Wild, our reserves and our work. Donors are transported to a Shared Earth Reserve for 2 nights where they stay in elegant ‘Walkabout’ tented accommodation deep in the wilderness. Participants awaken to an incredible wilderness landscape, rich in ancient culture and wildlife. Accompanied by the Forever Wild CEO, the days are filled with activities across our spearhead programs, including Indigenous and Early Settler history & culture, the culture and practice of people of these wild place and of course unparalleled wildlife experiences.
If you would like more information about our Donor Insight Program please contact Forever Wild at firstname.lastname@example.org
