Charitable Estate Planning
Meet Our Donors
Thirty five years ago, I met Brad Mead and began to help out on the family ranch in Spring Gulch while we finished law school. It helped that I had spent boatloads of time in the saddle before moving west from Vermont for my education. In the early days of my time with the Hansen/Mead Family, we still grazed our cows at the Elk Ranch near Moran.

Cherished Trips Spark Future Support
Several years ago, Chris and Holly arranged a bequest for the Foundation that will help others experience Grand Teton’s sights and sounds that have meant so much to them. “Setting up a legacy gift is an act of gratitude—it’s my way of being grateful for what I have,” Chris says. “It’s also a way of influencing things in a positive way for the future and helping the park continue to be as great as it is today.”
In the early 70s, I decided to go on the road for two months and explore our country's national parks. Hiking park trails and photographing wildlife is how I've spent my vacations ever since. Over the past decade, I've returned often to the spots I love most—Grand Teton, Yellowstone, Zion, and Bryce. Last year, I arranged a bequest through my will that will support trail work and wildlife protection in my favorite parks.
