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.
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.
