Legacy Gifts
 

Friends of Mono Lake Forever
The legacy society of the Mono Lake Committee

You can help ensure that Mono Lake will remain protected for generations to come by including the Mono Lake Committee in your will or estate plan.

Members Vern Gersh & Terry McLaughlin have included the Mono Lake Committee in their estate plans—watch the short video below to see why they chose to do so:

"It's not what we leave to people upon this earth, but the earth we leave to those we love." —Vern Gersh

A bequest from Mono Lake enthusiast Grace de Laet helped to fund a long-awaited, exciting remodel of the outdoor space in front of the Mono Lake Committee Information Center & Bookstore in 2012. See more below:

To read more about Grace and her generous bequest, see page 9 in the 2009 Winter & Spring Mono Lake Newsletter, and this Mono-logue post about the storefront grand opening.
