Grace de Laet – Leaving a Legacy for Birds


Grace de Laet

American Bird Conservancy would like to recognize the contributions of Grace de Laet to bird conservation. She was devoted to the environment from an early age, and birds and birding were her passion. Grace originally joined ABC because of the Cats Indoors Campaign, and for more than ten years was a staunch supporter of our work. She became a founding member of ABC’s Legacy Circle by including ABC in her estate plans.


Sadly, Grace passed away in 2009, but through her generous bequests she continues to play a vital part in our bird conservation efforts. By naming ABC in her will, Grace ensured that our work and hers will go on for generations to come. ABC is deeply grateful to her.
