Planned Giving is another way to leave a lasting
legacy on the landscape of the magnificent Keweenaw
Peninsula. Keweenaw Land Trust accepts gifts of real
estate, which are evaluated for conservation and
cultural value. Lands may be retained for nature
preserves or sold, with the donor's permission, to
provide income for the Trust's conservation program.
Lands meriting protection, but not suitable for a
preserve, are sold with a conservation easement in
place. Donors may choose to deed a remainder
interest on their property to Keweenaw Land Trust
and reserve a life estate for themselves.
Gifts of cash, securities, charitable remainder
trusts, and life insurance may designate KLT as a
beneficiary or be given via a will. Gifts may be
designated for an endowment, for general operating
support, or for a special project. Every gift to
Keweenaw Land Trust makes a difference and every
gift is important and unique.
Keweenaw Land Trust is a charitable organization and
gifts may result in tax advantages. Donors should
seek professional advice from an estate planner,
attorney, or tax professional to ensure their needs
