Planned Giving Resources
Looking to get started? We’ve partnered with FreeWill, an online tool that guides you through the process of creating a legally valid will or trust. It’s easy to use, accessible online, and can be completed in 20 minutes. You can use this resource on its own or use it to document your wishes before finalizing your plans with an attorney.
By securing your future and optionally designating a gift to Jackson Hole Land Trust in your plan, you can support ecosystem connectivity and safe migration for wildlife for generations to come.

Meet Teton Legacy Society member Lyndelle Fairlie (right). Lyndelle joined Jackson Hole Land Trust staff in the Tetons last summer to reflect on her love of Jackson Hole and to share her intent to leave a lasting impact on conservation in Northwest Wyoming. See what Lyndelle had to say and consider the legacy you’d like to create.
Jackson Hole Land Trust: What is your connection to Jackson Hole and the Jackson Hole Land Trust?
Lyndelle Fairlie: I began coming to Grand Teton National Park with my parents when I was a small child. I was so impressed by those mountains that it’s always a pleasure to return. We lived in the Chicago area, so the Tetons were a tremendous change.
One of the great pleasures of my life has been the Teton viewscape and I want to do what I can, so I made arrangements to include the Jackson Hole Land Trust in my will.
JHLT: What is your favorite thing about the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem?
LF: Just the impressiveness of the mountains from the Grand Teton to Moran. I just love to look at that stunning, just stunning, group of mountains.
JHLT: What do you hope to accomplish through this planned gift?
LF: I hope in some small way that I can contribute to the goal of preserving the Teton viewscape and wildlife corridors. I hate to see wildlife unable to move around because of too much development.
JHLT: Why would you encourage others to make a planned gift to the Jackson Hole Land Trust?
LF: It’s nice to have something like this as part of your legacy. Something that gave you great joy in life… you’re helping after you pass on. To help make sure others can have the same kinds of opportunities that I enjoyed when I was a child. I’ve been coming here for more than 70 years! And I hope other people will get the same pleasure in the future.
