River of Grass Legacy Society

Make a major impact advancing the mission of Friends of Everglades through planned gifts.

This honorary society recognizes the generosity of those special friends whose vision for the future will provide a permanent legacy in support of Friends’ mission to preserve, protect and restore the only Everglades in the world.
