Unless we act, six out of every ten languages around the world stand doomed to extinction over the next 75 years as the last three fluent generations of speakers pass on. Although people like you around the world have become increasingly aware of the language-loss crisis, policymakers have not yet allocated enough resources to substantially turn back the tide of the coming wave of extinctions.

Make a donation today to help TLC assist indigenous communities around the world with the revitalization of their ancestral languages. With your help, these communities will once again resound with the excited voices of the youngest generation speaking the languages of their peoples as they proudly take part in the culture their language encapsulates.

Create a Legacy through Bequest

One of the simplest planned gifts is a bequest through your will in which you designate either a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate after other disbursements.

In addition to supporting The Language Conservancy, it serves as an example to your heirs of the values and ideals you hold dear. A bequest also can reduce the amount of your taxable estate, which may increase the actual amount available to loved ones.
