Give to the Annual Fund
Your tax-deductible donation to the Wildlands Trust Annual Fund means you are helping permanently impact the environmental health of Southeastern Massachusetts. The Annual Fund provides donors the ability to stretch and diversify their donation through a single gift that supports activities undertaken by Wildlands to make our region a special place to live.
Why is our area so special? Located within driving distance of Boston, the towns that make up Southeastern Massachusetts have ample clean water, plentiful open land, beautiful vistas, productive farms, inspiring places to recreate and residents who care about the natural world. Sustaining and building upon the region’s environmental health and beauty is the core purpose of the Annual Fund.
Contributions to The Annual Fund support projects that:
- Protect water
- Save open land
- Re-establish farm land
- Protect livelihoods
- Educate teens by offering them opportunities to serve their communities
We appreciate your support!
Your Legacy Lives On When You Make A Bequest to Wildlands Trust
Many people dedicate a portion of their estate to support a cause they have believed in during their lifetime. By leaving a bequest to Wildlands Trust, you can ensure that your commitment to land conservation lives on while reducing the size of your estate, thereby lowering your estate tax liability. A bequest in your will is one of the simplest ways to make a planned gift to Wildlands Trust. If you have already done your estate planning, a codicil to your will may be added to make your bequest. Other opportunities like land donations, lead trusts, charitable remainder trusts, IRA distributions (for those over 70 ½ years old) and more are also available to you.
Whichever route you choose, it’s always a good idea to seek professional advice. To get started today, call Sue Chamberlain at 774-343-5121 ext.101 or email Sue to discuss your ideas and intentions.
We look forward to partnering with you to protect the landscapes you love and to leave a lasting legacy.
