Gifts of Stock
The Minnesota Land Trust accepts gifts of stock to further our mission. When you transfer stock to the Land Trust, it is sold to provide funding for our work across the state. Most people give shares in public companies which makes it easy to see what the gift is valued at, if stocks have appreciated and by how much. You can also gift a portion of a mutual fund or ETF.
Because you won’t pay capital gains taxes on donated stock that has appreciated in value and you can write off the gift as a charitable donation on your taxes, donating gifts of stock can be a smart way to support the causes you care about.
If you have questions or wish to discuss your options, please contact Jennifer Scholl, Minnesota Land Trust Director of Development and Communications, at 651-917-6289 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re ready to give, please notify the Minnesota Land Trust of your gift of stock so we can attribute the gift and provide a tax receipt.
Include the Minnesota Land Trust in your estate plans and create a legacy of conservation to help protect our precious outdoor spaces for generations to come. Learn more about your options for planned giving.
Gifts of Land
The Minnesota Land Trust can accept gifts of real estate subject to the Land Trust’s Gift Acceptance policy.
Typically, the Land Trust does not retain property for the long term, but will sell the land and use those funds to further the mission of the organization.
