People who are connected to special places energize the protection of land — be a part of it! It starts with your vision for the land. What do you want to protect?
Maybe you own land that you want to protect. You many wish to donate a conservation easement — even donate the property itself — to GPLT. When you protect land, you leave a legacy for coming generations. Your donation may help reduce family estate tax, income taxes, and property tax. Contact us by completing the form on our website or calling us for more information.
Great things start when people get inspired.
Maybe you can volunteer. Can you spark new ideas, spread the word or inspire children to love nature, too? GPLT needs active citizens, dedicated volunteers, talented staff and visionary board members. We need you and your special skills! Or make a donation.
Donate via PayPal
A gift to GPLT is a gift to your community. Your donation will support our work to:
- ensure that important conservation values remain intact
- restore the important functions of habitat
- help people connect with natural places
- spread the word about the importance of conservation
Leaving a Bequest
By being intentional about the legacy you want to leave behind through a bequest, you can make a positive impact for generations to come. Designating a charitable contribution in your will or living trust ensures that what’s important to you is taken care of for years to come. Whether your gift takes the form of a specific monetary sum, a percentage of your estate, or the residual amount after adder, you will contribute to the long-term conservation of our natural resources.
SAMPLE LANGUAGE FOR YOUR WILL
