Donation of Land

A donation of land to a land trust constitutes a charitable gift that is tax deductible at full fair market value. We will work with you to establish a vision and management plan for the property. While the conservancy can accept and retain ownership of land, it is not our goal to be a landowner. We might sell the land to a suitable government agency or to another private owner with a conservation easement in place to permanently protect the property according to the donor’s wishes. Proceeds from a sale can fund our long-term commitment to overseeing the property and/or enhance our ability to protect additional land.
