Establish your legacy through planned giving with Great Valley Nature Center. GVNC was initiated by a legacy gift of nature provided by Arnold Bartchi back in 1974. That legacy was further solidified by gifts from the French and Pickering Creek Trust, Dr. and Mrs. Clarkson Wentz, and the initial Executive Director, John Christie, creating the environmental center, education programs, and eventually the Bird of Prey Center. Bequests, gifts of securities, real estate and historical artifacts, artwork or objects, and honor and memorial gifts can all become legacy gifts. Contact Tom Pascoello, Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
