We are excited that you want to learn more about our work and would consider leaving a legacy gift to The Frontera Land Alliance for the preservation of open natural lands, working farms, water and wildlife.
Because so much of our land conservation work is about ensuring that the places we save today will be protected forever, legacy gifts (also known as “planned gifts or estate planning”) are indispensable to both land trusts and the Land Trust Alliance. There is no better or easier way to make a difference for land conservation many years from now.
Your will or living trust is an important way to provide for family and friends, plan the management and disposition of your estate and ensure a lasting legacy for the causes that have special meaning for you. Such legacy gifts can be changed at any time you choose, giving you maximum flexibility in your planning. You will also enjoy peace of mind knowing that your property will be put to good use in the future, but your cash flow will not be affected today.
You may choose to specify that The Frontera Land Alliance receives a specific dollar amount or asset, a percentage of your estate, a contingent bequest in case you outlive other heirs or a portion of the residue (remainder) of your estate after provisions for friends and family are taken care of. Creating or updating your estate requires careful planning with the help of an estate-planning attorney. Bequest language can vary from state to state and from country to country. Thus, it is always best to use an attorney who understands local estate laws. With that in mind, we suggest that you give the following suggested bequest wording to your attorney.
