As a Century Steward, you can make a major contribution to preserving open space, working lands and habitat. Century Stewards provide a reliable, predictable flow of funding that allows us to plan and invest in long-term projects that preserve land and our quality of life in Jefferson County. Stewards commit to a gift of at least $1,000 a year for either three years or five years. Annual giving levels can be in an amount you choose. The most common amounts are $1,000, $2,500, $5,000, $10,000 or $25,000.

When you include Jefferson Land Trust in your estate plans, you create a lasting legacy that will have an impact for generations to come. A planned gift can be made as part of an overall financial or estate plan and is usually, but not always, deferred until the end of the donor’s life. By including Jefferson Land Trust in your estate plan, either you or your estate may be able to make a charitable donation. Depending on your estate plan, the tax savings could be significant.

Find out more about planned giving.

Once you reach age 73, you must make Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) from your IRA each year. RMDs are treated as taxable income except when you make a charitable IRA rollover. Qualified Charitable Distributions made payable directly from your IRA to Jefferson Land Trust (up to $100,000 a year) are exempt from income tax. Check with your IRA administrator for details.

“I give generously of both my time and money to Jefferson Land Trust because I know the forest will continue to support both wildlife and timber, the newts will continue to cross the road to lay their eggs in wet areas, the trees will shade the creek welcoming back the returning salmon, the kestrel will nest safely and the swans will rest and feed, the schoolchildren will splash while learning in any body of water, the farmland will feed us as well as the invertebrates, birds and other mammals, families will have jobs, our community will be more resilient and healthy, and we will all be living with more beauty. All this is happening on protected lands and is possible with your generous support.”
