Establish a long-lasting legacy with your gift.

For 30 years you have invested in conservation initiatives led by the Bitterroot Water Partnership. As the only organization dedicated exclusively to protecting and restoring the Bitterroot watershed, we are dedicated to ensuring clean and abundant water remains in the Valley.    

With 31 impaired streams and mounting pressure from a changing area and climate, we must look to how we will protect the Bitterroot for the next 30 years.  

By including the Water Partnership in your planned giving, you can ensure a legacy of clean, abundant water not just for current communities, but for generations to come.


A bequest is a gift made by naming Bitterroot Water Partnership as a beneficiary in your will or trust. You can add BWP to an existing will or living trust, or include the organization in a new will. Bequests are a great way to support the future work of BWP without impacting your day to day finances.  

Qualified Charitable Distribution

An IRA rollover allows individuals 70 ½ or older to make tax-free IRA charitable rollover gifts directly from your retirement account to Bitterroot Water Partnership. This allows you to send up to $100,000 per year to nonprofit organizations and avoid owing taxes on that rollover.
