The benefits of donating land

From small building lots to sprawling forests, gifts of land often come with deep histories and great generosity.

They also have significant tax benefits. You can receive an income tax deduction for up to the fair market value and you’ll pay no capital gains tax on the transfer.

The land that people give to us fall into two categories:

  • Land that is a candidate for conservation: This includes larger properties with productive forest or farmland, or special natural or cultural features.
  • Land that we will sell to fund our future work: This includes smaller parcels, house lots, or residences.

We can let you know which category we feel your property will fall into.
