Show someone special in your life how much they mean to you with the gift of CalTrout membership.
A donation in the form of a membership to CalTrout is the perfect gift to that friend that has everything.
With a legacy gift, you leave a lasting legacy of support for California’s fish, water, and people.
Honoring California Trout with a gift in your will or living trust is a meaningful way to leave a legacy of support that will continue to make a difference for years to come. We invite our Richard May Legacy Giving Circle members to special events.
Joey Chait Youth Initiative Fund
Teaching children the importance of protecting California’s fish and rivers.
Joseph W. Chait was a native San Franciscan and supporter of California Trout and environmental causes. An avid fly fisherman and outdoor enthusiast, Joey had a smile and laugh that could fill a room. He was passionate about his family, his work, his community and conservation. As a devoted father and grandfather, Joey cared deeply about children and their future. He was a man who put family and true friendship above all else. In the spirit of Joey’s desire to inspire others, a group of his fishing buddies partnered with California Trout to establish this Fund in his memory.
