Remember, all contributions to the Trust are tax-deductible. You may wish to consider a gift of cash, real estate or stock. Giving long-term appreciated stock offers you a two-fold tax saving. First, you avoid paying any capital gains tax on the increase in value in your stock. In addition, you receive a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift.
If you would like to honor or remember a special person or occasion, what better way than by helping us preserve the natural diversity that makes our area so beautiful. A donation to the Trust will help us preserve a legacy of land in your community, enhance a nature preserve or provide environmental education opportunities. We are pleased to accept donations in honor of birthdays, graduations, marriages, anniversaries and Christmas, as well as donations in memory of loved ones. The honoree or their family will be notified of your gift. We will also send you an acknowledgment of the donation for your tax records.
When you make an online donation, be sure to let us know that this is a gift or memorial donation.
