Peace Parks Foundation Legacy Society

Dear Friends of Peace Parks Foundation

As Peace Parks Club founding members, my wife Francesca and I have always wondered why Peace Parks Foundation has not created its own institution for members who would like to donate their fortune, or a part of it, in a useful manner to serve the purposes of the Foundation.

With the starting of the international Peace Parks Foundation Legacy Society, that gap will be filled.

The society will offer you an ideal platform to keep your legacy alive, while at the same time developing transfrontier conservation areas throughout southern Africa. Francesca and I decided to contribute to sustainable nature conservation as a means to safeguarding the natural wealth of our earth.

Please help us to build a strong membership base for the legacy programme.

With kind regards,
Hansjürg and Francesca Saager
Chairman: Peace Parks Foundation Legacy Society

Peace Parks Foundation Legacy Society

The society provides options to international and South African friends and supporters of transfrontier conservation in southern Africa to give financial support to:

  • Peace Parks Foundation operations
  • Peace Parks Foundation programmes and projects

Direct support to Peace Parks Foundation's training partners:

Legacies can take many shapes

LIVING LEGACY: Make regular financial gifts during your lifetime

PECUNIARY BEQUEST: You can bequeath a specific gift of money

REVERSIONARY BEQUEST: A gift of actual assets that are left to a particular beneficiary to use during his or her lifetime. The assets would then pass to Peace Parks Foundation on the death of that particular person

CONDITIONAL BEQUEST: Ensures that, should none of your named dependents survive you, your estate, or a portion thereof, would then be left to Peace Parks Foundation

SPECIFIC OR NON-MONETARY BEQUEST: A collection, property, shares or a work of art

RESIDUARY BEQUEST: Once you have decided what you wish to leave to your loved ones and after all other payments have been made, you may bequeath the balance of your estate, or a portion thereof, to Peace Parks Foundation.

Leave a bequest - tax benefit options

Reducing the total value of your estate can lead to considerable savings on tax, depending on the tax laws of your country. Kindly see the Support section for details. In South Africa, bequests to Peace Parks Foundation are exempt from tax if the donation amounts to more than R1 million in a specific year.

The foundation's valued partners in training, the SA College for Tourism and Southern African Wildlife College, are both registered non-profit organisations that are tax exempt without any limitations, making all bequests to the colleges, regardless of value, tax exempt in South Africa.


We have established structures outside South Africa that allow for donations to be made in a tax-efficient manner.
