Donations are an important way to show your support of our efforts, and can be made in the following ways:
May be treated as a charitable deduction for income tax purposes. Click here to contribute today.
The value of the securities is deductible as a charitable gift for tax purposes, and capital gains tax may be avoided.
A gift of cash or stock in memory of a family member or friend or in celebration of a birthday, anniversary or other special event is a wonderful way to honor someone you love and also support your commitment to the environment. We will be glad to provide special recognition for these gifts if desired.
If you work for a company which has a matching gifts program, please apply for those benefits and your gift to the Land Trust will be doubled.
Donations of land/property fall into two broad classifications: property that meets the Trust’s criteria for permanent conservation, or property that can be sold or traded to benefit the overall mission of the Trust.

Planned giving for the future creates a legacy for you and your family, and notes your commitment to preserving Bloomfield’s natural resources. If this interests you, please consult your attorney about the tax benefits you and/or your heirs could realize.
Some options are:
Name the Bloomfield Land Trust in your will or living trust to be distributed after your lifetime. Please notify us if you have established a provision in your will, so we can give you proper recognition.
Name the Trust as the beneficiary of your individual retirement account or deferred benefit plan.
Consider naming the Wintonbury Land Trust as beneficiary for a policy no longer needed for your family, or purchase one directly to benefit the Wintonbury Land Trust.
By investing funds into a charitable remainder trust or annuity, you or a family member is provided with income during your lifetime and the Wintonbury Land Trust will receive a delayed gift of principal.
For additional information, consult with your attorney, and email us and a Land Trust representative will contact you.
