Planned Giving

Your love of the land can live on. With a planned gift, you can leave a legacy for the land. There are lots of planned gift options, and together with your tax advisor, we can find a way to achieve your goals to protect local lands and waterways for future generations.

Remembering Genesee Land Trust in your will with a bequest – a big gift that costs you nothing in your lifetime. A bequest in a will or trust can be as simple as “I give $XXX (or, I give Y% of my Residuary Estate) to Genesee Land Trust, Inc., a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable organization with offices at 46 Prince Street, Suite LL005, Rochester, NY 14607.”

Including Genesee Land Trust as a beneficiary on a retirement account – a gift that can plan for a special gift and potentially avoid a significant income tax burden for your heirs.  To name Genesee Land Trust as a beneficiary of a retirement account, you will need to file a Change of Beneficiary form with the company holding the account to add Genesee Land Trust, Inc., a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable organization with offices at 46 Prince Street, Suite LL005, Rochester, NY 14607.

Naming Genesee Land Trust as a beneficiary of life insurance – planning for a significant gift with a known amount. In order to direct all or a portion of a life insurance policy to Genesee Land Trust, you will need to complete and submit a Change of Beneficiary form available from the Insurance Company to add Genesee Land Trust, Inc., a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable organization with offices at 46 Prince Street, Suite LL005, Rochester, NY 14607.

You are invited to join others who care about conserving lands for generations to come by becoming a member of the Genesee Land Trust Legacy Society when you share with us your plans for a planned gift. Legacy Society members receive invitations to special events throughout the year and our gratitude for your generous commitment to local land conservation.

To discuss your plans to leave a legacy for Genesee Land Trust, please contact Gay Mills at gmills@geneseelandtrust.org or (585) 256-2130.
