Leave a legacy of land preservation.

Preserve YOUR Land

Do you have a family farm or land that is significant to you and your family or that has high conservation value? Would you like to preserve its legacy and ensure that it is available for future generations to enjoy?  There are a number of planned giving options to help you achieve these goals:

  • Outright Land Donation: Simple and straightforward – you give full title and ownership of your land to the Land Trust. In return, you receive federal and state tax benefits and relief from property taxes.
  • Last Will and Testament: You may name the Land Trust of North Alabama in your will as the recipient of your land or a portion of your land upon your death.
  • Life Estate: You may deed your land to the Land Trust now and reserve the right to live on and use the property during your lifetime. You are entitled to all income tax deductions in the year the gift is made.
  • Conservation EasementYou may place restrictions on your property or a portion of your property to protect its associated resources. In return, you can reduce property taxes and claim a charitable deduction.
