Making Gifts of Stock

Transferring shares of stock is an easy option for giving generously while maintaining your cash on hand. Consult your tax advisor for tax-deduction information and timing of your gift. Solano Land Trust has partnered with a free stock-giving tool that walks you through the process of making a gift in under 5 minutes.

Business Sponsors

Each year we host fundraising events and rely on our corporate partners to help make these events even more successful. When you sponsor at the $500 (cash or in-kind value) or more, you become a Business Partner in Conservation. This is an effective way to reach your target market and be seen as a valued community-minded business. Contact Michelle Dickey at michelle@solanolandtrust.org, or 707-709-9022 to get more information on our next event where your name and logo can be marketed.

What is a Bequest?

A bequest is an outright gift of money, stock or bonds, land, tangible personal property or other assets, which is made at the time of your death. With a simple, revocable change in your will or living trust, you can provide permanent, public access to Solano Land Trust’s spectacular open lands. A bequest made to Solano Land Trust is deducted from the estate before the federal estate tax is calculated. However, we are not tax advisors and we encourage you to seek professional tax advice before making decisions about your estate.

Planned Giving

Solano Land Trust established a Legacy League program to acknowledge those who have included the land trust in their estate plans. Planned giving allows you to support our work while providing certain financial benefits to you. This offers you a variety of ways to help Solano Land Trust provide permanent protection and stewardship to our natural parks and agricultural land. Combine the satisfaction of providing lasting conservation of these lands with the potential tax benefits of a planned gift. If you are interested in joining the Legacy League, there are many options, to include:

• A Charitable Remainder Trust
Life Insurance
• Remainder interest in a farm, ranch, or other residence
• Bequests : We’ve partnered with FreeWill, an online tool that guides you through the process of creating a legally valid will. It’s easy to use, free of charge, and can be completed in 20 minutes or less. Use FreeWill’s tool to kickstart your plans and designate a gift to Solano Land Trust.
