This option may be best suited for you if do not wish to leave your land to heirs, no longer use the land, or want to be relieved of management responsibilities. It is important to contact the Conservancy before making this decision. Donations can include all or just a portion of your property. For more information on your land donation see Your Land Legacy.
It is possible to donate a property now and retain the right to live on and use the property during your lifetime. This is known as a “reserved life estate.”
Memorials and Honors
A gift of remembrance to the Conservancy is a wonderful way to recognize someone who has made a difference in your life. It is a thoughtful memorial, or a way to honor someone on special occasions, such as birthday, retirement, anniversary or holiday.
These gifts are a gratifying way for individuals, organizations, businesses and groups to honor some one while supporting the Conservancy's mission to protect the cherished lands of the Driftless Area. Simply name the Driftless Area Land Conservancy, Inc. for memorials or include the details of the individual you want to honor with your donation.
A bequest is also called a “donation by devise” and transfers ownership of your property to the Conservancy through your will. Simply name the Driftless Area Land Conservancy, Inc. in your will or trust documents. This is a great choice if compensation is not a necessity and you do not want to limit the current use of your land.
