Have you ever wondered what planned giving is, or how you could have a lasting positive impact for Texas Land Conservancy? A planned gift is a donation made at a specific time, usually through a will. Planned gifts offer donors a way to provide charitable donations that may not be possible today. You can have a significant impact on saving land and sharing in our mission by making a planned gift to the Texas Land Conservancy. Not only will you make a substantial commitment to protecting the natural heritage of Texas, you may also be eligible to receive meaningful financial benefits for yourself and your heirs. A planned gift can be as simple as including the Texas Land Conservancy in your will or naming us as a beneficiary of an insurance policy, retirement plan, or certificate of deposit. We encourage you to consult with your legal or financial advisors prior to making a planned gift to Texas Land Conservancy.
There are numerous planned giving options, including:
- Outright Gifts
- Charitable Trusts
- Gift Annuities
- Gifts of Stock
Regardless of the kind of planned gift you choose, you will direct your gift to conservation, help simplify your estate plans, and perhaps increase your income. When you make a planned gift, you automatically become a member of the Texas Land Conservancy Legacy Circle and join a community of Texans who have already made a commitment to enhancing the quality of life through land conservation. Legacy Circle members are invited to and honored every year at our annual fall dinner for members of the Ned Fritz Society – those donors who donate $1,000 or more each year to Texas Land Conservancy.
“Dorothy and I have truly enjoyed our involvement with TLC and the partnership that has developed through placing a conservation easment on our ranch. When it came to designating beneficiaries in our will, it was an easy decision to include TLC. Our hope is that this generous gift will ensure a lasting legacy.”
-Chuck Snakard, long time TLC member and owner of Chalk Mountain Ranch
Over the years TLC has been the beneficiary of numerous planned gifts, whether it is land, life insurance policies, stocks, or cash. To join the TLC Legacy Circle or for more information about planned giving, please contact:
