Plan Your Estate

Pass it along: Perpetuate the spirit of discovery and conservation, forever

It’s easy to include the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in your estate plans, especially through a bequest or life income agreement.

To make a bequest through your will, simply include the following language:

“I give and bequeath the sum of $__ (or __% of my residuary estate) to Cornell University for the Lab of Ornithology to be used in support of its charitable purposes.”

We would be honored to talk with you about these important issues, enabling you to fulfill your commitments to your family while supporting new discoveries about birds and nature, and effective conservation. To learn more about estate planning opportunities to benefit you and the Cornell Lab, please call Scott Sutcliffe at (607) 254-2424 or Sean Scanlon at (607) 254-1105. The Cornell Lab is pleased to acknowledge such friends as members of the Sapsucker Woods Society.
