When you give land to The Trustees, you are creating a permanent legacy and helping ensure the healthy future of our communities.

You have many options when giving land to The Trustees - including giving land that might not be worthy of conservation but which can be resold to benefit land conservation. Your donation can provide you significant income tax, estate tax, and capital gains tax benefits.

You can give land during your lifetime or leave it through your will. You can donate an entire property or a smaller parcel – or even undivided interests in a parcel. Or, donate a conservation restriction on your land.

The option you choose will depend on your personal circumstances – we can help you find the right option for you. Call or email our expert staff for advice and guidance.
