Marty Griffin had a dream . . .

In 1961, Marty Griffin dared to dream of saving an historic piece of the Marin County coast. Over the years, others have partnered with Audubon Canyon Ranch to share their dream of keeping part of California wild and pristine, among them David Bouverie, Clifford Conly, and Jim and Shirley Modini. They have been joined by dozens of individuals whose love for this land and the work of ACR have inspired legacy gifts.

Do you have a dream, too? Planned Giving as a member of the Clerin Zumwalt Legacy Circle lets you help sustain the programs & preserves of Audubon Canyon Ranch. 

What is Planned Giving? 

Planned gfts allow donors to provide future benefits to causes they care for, usually through a bequest in a will or living trust. The donor controls the bequest during life. Other methods provide the donor with immediate tax and financial benefits.
