For Professional Advisors

As of June 2013, we changed our name from PRBO to Point Blue Conservation Science. Estate gifts are also accepted under PRBO, PRBO Conservation Science, and Point Reyes Bird Observatory. If you have any questions, please contact Nancy Gamble, Director of Individual Giving at 707.781.2555, x324 or

Estate gifts will continue to be accepted under PRBO, PRBO Conservation Science, and Point Reyes Bird Observatory.

As a professional advisor, you build your client relationships on trust and mutual respect. The same is true for our relationships with our friends and donors.

We understand that financial, philanthropic and estate goals are unique to the individual. For this reason we welcome the opportunity to assist as you incorporate your clients’ philanthropic objectives into well-crafted estate plans. Furthermore, we encourage prospective donors to consult with their professional advisors before making decisions based on information we provide.

The creation of an estate plan ensures that your personal, financial and philanthropic goals continue to be met beyond your lifetime. By including Point Blue in your estate plan, you can have the satisfaction of knowing that you are making a lasting difference for conservation in California and throughout the West.

If you have named Point Blue in your estate plan, we hope you will share this with us. We would be honored to welcome you to our Tern Society and would love the opportunity to express our gratitude.

If you choose to include Point Blue in your will or estate plan, our organization should be named as follows: Point Blue Conservation Science, a nonprofit corporation, organized and existing under the laws of California, and with principal business address of 3820 Cypress Drive #11, Petaluma, CA 94954. Tax ID # 94-1594250.

Please feel free to contact us directly for information or assistance on a confidential basis.
