We would like to invite you to join our Circle of Hope which is a special group of supporters who have agreed to advise the Institute that they have included our organization in their will or estate plan.

We welcome you to join us as we steward the Jane Goodall Institute into the future.

A planned gift to the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) is a wonderful way to affirm your values and priorities and build your legacy along with Jane’s in changing lives, improving outcomes and protecting the world we all share.

What is the Circle of Hope?

Circle of Hope is a special group of dedicated supporters who have made a financial commitment in their estate plans. If you have already made a provision for JGI in your plans, thank you! We hope you will let us know, so we can welcome you to our Circle of Hope.

Circle of Hope enables us to acknowledge the generosity of friends just like you, whose commitment to the mission and work of the Institute gives them the desire to remember JGI in their estate plans. Membership is complimentary and without obligation.

Whether you inform us of your intentions or not, please know how grateful we are for your thoughtfulness.Your legacy will help us to grow and effect positive change around the world many years from now.


Lighting a candle for the road ahead

“Who amongst us has not been inspired by the work of Jane Goodall, who quite literally changed the definition of man? I believe that her work has saved the habitat of chimps in Africa. Her life is a testament to the impact one person with vision and determination can have in this world.

I have included JGI in my will and estate plan because the job of conservation and education isn’t complete, and her legacy must continue after we all have passed on. Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “It is better to light a candle, than curse the darkness.” My fondest wish is that my bequest to JGI serve as such a candle in the road ahead.”
