Ways To Give
These tax deductible cash contributions help us to meet our annual operating expenses and build an alliance of donors who believe in the core values of land preservation and nature conservancy and who appreciate the heritage of the Western landscape and ranching lifestyle.
Gifts of this nature are tax deductible and can be designated to support a specific project or underwrite equipment and capital needs. For example, the CRT transaction staff travels many miles during the year to monitor various land projects within the state and a donation made to help purchase a vehicle would be extremely valuable to assist their efforts.
Donations can be made as a Memorial gift in memory of a loved one or as an Honorary gift to pay tribute to a significant family member, friend or business associate. This is a wonderful way to permanently recognize those outstanding individuals who have left impressions on our lives.
Major Gifts and Endowment Donations
Significant financial support can be offered as a one time donation or as an annual major gift, restricted or unrestricted, to provide for expenses such as project monitoring, land acquisition, or specific program needs. Other large gifts designated for the California Rangeland Trust Endowment Fund can be made to perpetuate our financial strength and lasting health of the organization.
Planned Estate Gifts
There are several important ways you can make revocable or irrevocable planned gifts to support our organization and provide the donor financial benefits as well. A planned gift is a useful method to offset gift and estate taxes, reduce your income tax and capital gains liability or establish an income stream for yourself or others. Many opportunities exist for donors who want to support our conservation work and establish significant tax advantages through their contributions.
It is up to you and your attorney, accountant or other succession planning adviser to determine the best fit for you.
