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.

“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.”
