Make A Donation

Your donation —whether it is a gift of your time, talents, or treasures— provides the support needed to teach, inspire, and change people's lives. From the many hikes and family programs offered at Pierce Cedar Creek Institute to the summer research program for college students, your donation helps the Institute bring our mission to inspire appreciation and stewardship of our environment up close and personal. All members who make a donation to the Institute above the cost of a basic membership are Annual Donors in the Pierce Cedar Creek Institute Giving Society.

Planned giving is one way you can help the Institute work to fulfill its mission for years to come. A planned gift may be made in a number of ways and should be designated to Pierce Cedar Creek Institute, Hastings, Michigan (tax number 38-2820095). Most commonly, planned gifts are made via a gift in a will or trust, an allocation from a retirement plan or a designation in a life insurance policy. All members who make a planned gift to the Institute are Legacy Donors in the Pierce Cedar Creek Institute Giving Society.
