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.

Make a Memorial Donation
Celebrate the life of a friend or loved one through a donation in their honor or memory to The Language Conservancy. You can express your support, respect, gratitude, or love for a special person in your life with a TLC tribute gift.
We acknowledge each donation with a card for the person or couple you designate, to serve as a reminder of how much you care about them and the health of the world’s languages.
Create a Legacy through Bequest
A legacy through your will offers one of the simplest avenues for a planned gift. You can designate either a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate.
A bequest not only supports The Language Conservancy, it stands as a reminder to your heirs of the values and ideals you hold dear. A bequest can also reduce the amount of your taxable assets, which may increase the amount of your estate available to your loved ones.
Make a Difference with a Planned Gift
You can support our mission well into the future through many different ways. We can help you leave a legacy of love for the world’s languages and cultures.
If you’re interested in supporting our mission and would like to receive steady payments during your retirement years, a charitable gift annuity may be right for you.
Your employer’s matching gift program can substantially increase your gift to The Language Conservancy. Thousands of companies match their employees’ charitable contributions. Sometimes, an employer will even double the amount of the initial gift.
Corporate or Foundation Giving
You can plan gifts of lasting significance to save languages and cultures for future generations through other pathways. Some of these include:
• Corporate or Foundation Donations
• Philanthropic Gifts
• Donor Advised Funds
Give Stocks, Bonds, or Mutual Funds
You can easily donate your appreciated stocks and mutual funds to help preserve a language. TLC can accept a variety of donation instruments, including Stocks, Mutual Funds, and other securities that may be especially attractive to you under current tax laws.
Such gifts can provide much-needed support for TLC’s conservation projects and offer you financial benefits as well.
