Planned Giving

Planned Giving is an excellent way to leave a lasting legacy on the landscape of the magnificent Keweenaw Peninsula. One of the most enduring and simple ways is to remember the Keweenaw Land Trust in your will. Gifts may be designated to an endowment, for general operating support, or for a special project of your choosing. Every gift to Keweenaw Land Trust makes a difference, no matter how large. Even an individual with a small estate can arrange to leave a generous charitable gift. Whatever your circumstances, a legacy gift will help conserve what you love about our region for future generations.

There are numerous ways to leave a legacy gift to the KLT. Wills, trusts, appreciated securities, retirement assets, real estate (with or without conservation value), cash, and charitable gift annuities are all acceptable methods for contributing to the organization. A bequest can have a huge impact on the KLT, benefiting the organization in many ways. Bequests are advantageous as your assets remain in your control during your lifetime and may be modified if your circumstances change. Additionally, there is no upper limit on estate tax deductions for charitable bequests, potentially reducing your estate tax liability.

Financial or legal professionals can assist you in making the right decisions for you and your heirs. Request our Planned Giving Guide to learn more about your options and how a legacy gift will benefit both you and the Keweenaw Land Trust. Paper copies are available on request through our office, please contact us for a copy or if you have additional questions.
