Our Employer Identification Number (EIN) is 82-3383564.

Look us up on Guidestar, Charity Navigator, or the Internal Revenue Service's Tax Exempt Organization Search.

Important note: Careful readers will notice the apostrophe missing from our name in these databases! This is because the IRS systems do not allow special characters, so you will find us listed officially as Wisconsins Green Fire Incorporated. 

Creating Your Conservation Legacy through Planned Giving to Wisconsin's Green Fire 

In addition to making annual gifts, a growing number of our supporters contribute to Wisconsin’s Green Fire through both planned giving during their lifetime and through gifts via bequests defined in their wills or estate plans. Planned giving can be an important estate planning tool that brings satisfaction, as well as tax benefits for you and your family.

See our 2022 publication "Leave a Wisconsin Conservation Legacy for the Generations Who Follow" for details on ways to support WGF during your lifetime and beyond.

Contact Executive Director Meleesa Johnson, mjohnson@wigreenfire.org, to discuss opportunities for planned giving.
