Your Legacy for Conservation
You can make a difference!
LOOKING OUT FOR TOMORROW, WITH A PLANNED GIFT TODAY
For conservation to stand the test of time, we need to connect people from all walks of life to the special places in Virginia–and you can make that happen.
Planning your estate is an important way to provide for your loved ones. It is also a great way to achieve your philanthropic goals, and to ensure that the natural world and places you cherish remain and thrive for generations to come.
Perhaps you would like to help LTV in a more significant way but feel you cannot make a substantial gift today. When you leave a gift through your will to the Land Trust of Virginia, your vision for the future lives on. Your contribution will help ensure that farms are conserved, wildlife habitats stay intact, and the young people of Virginia put down their tablets or phones and connect to the natural world in meaningful ways.
LTV Board Member Steffanie Burgevin created the Land Trust of Virginia Legacy Giving Fund, to provide the support needed to ensure that the Land Trust’s protected lands will be protected forever.
Like Steffanie, you can make a greater impact that goes beyond this lifetime. A gift through your will or trust ensures the future protection of the places you love and creates a lasting legacy of conservation.
There are many options and types of planned gifts for you to consider, here are just a few:
Bequests: Leave Land Trust of Virginia a gift through your will or revocable living trust.
