Planned Giving

Our Shared Legacy

Since 1975, NESEA has changed careers, strengthened business, and impacted lives through fostering connection, collaboration, and friendships. We’ve pushed the envelope of best practice, tackled emerging challenges, learned from one another, and developed treasured relationships along the way.

Today, NESEA envisions a built environment in the Northeast that is climate neutral, adaptive and resilient, energy independent, architecturally inspiring, and supportive of connection and community. As a member of this enduring community, your planned gift can support NESEA’s continued success and our shared work well into the future.

Giving to NESEA

Giving To NESEA

Your planned gift to NESEA supports our ability to pursue our mission: advancing the adoption of sustainable energy practices in the built environment by cultivating a community where practitioners share, collaborate and learn.

Whether NESEA has been a part of your life since its inception or you are simply a fan of the meaningful work the organization does, planned giving allows you to support its financial health and future impact.


The Impact of Your Gift

The Impact of Your Gift

Unless otherwise specified, all planned gifts will be considered general donations to NESEA. This allows us to apply support where it is most needed year-to-year. 

Examples of how gifts may be used include establishing strategic scholarships, building new partnerships, welcoming internationally renowned speakers to our conferences, supporting program development and expansion, shoring up reserves, and efforts to support the participation of people who face financial challenges and/or who have been previously underrepresented in our industries. 

Another option donors may consider is specifying that their gift supports the Endowment Fund.
