Your annual gifts of support to Ilan-Lael over the past 40 years has allowed the Hubbells to provide us with some wondrous gifts—Ilan-Lael, Pacific Rim Park, Hidden Leaves, Colegio La Esperanza, Conversations on Beauty, and much more.

James and Anne put their faith in people, art, and nature and nurtured those beliefs into tangible art- and nature-based projects that have changed thousands of lives and bettered our community. Now we build on the Hubbells’ vision through the Ilan-Lael Endowment, ensuring that Ilan-Lael will be there for future generations, touching lives through art, nature and beauty.

Introducing The Founders’ Circle

In addition to your regular annual giving, we invite you to join the Founders’ Circle, a select group of friends and family who will be recognized in perpetuity for planting the first seeds of the Ilan-Lael Endowment. The Founders’ Circle is open for a limited time, until we reach our initial goal of $500,000. Become a lifetime member of the Founder’s Circle today with your gift of $500 or more.

Win-Win Giving Opportunities

Founders’ Circle gifts may also be made through stocks, IRA’s or real estate. Gifts of this nature can provide you with attractive tax advantages right away—a win-win opportunity to build on the vision of James and Anne Hubbell and at the same time, help meet your philanthropic goals.

Be remembered in our Legacy Society! In addition to your regular annual giving, legacy gifts in your estate plan can ensure your impact carries forward far into the future.  Please let us know if you have included Ilan-Lael in your estate plan so we can recognize you in our Legacy Society!
