A significant portion of Wallowa Land Trust’s budget depends on donations from local citizens, as well as numerous Oregonians and others around the nation who care about Wallowa County. Because we are a charitable nonprofit, all donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. Your gift supports our efforts to protect the places we love in Wallowa County: natural areas, wildlife habitat, open spaces and working lands.
Supporting Wallowa Land Trust’s work can take many forms, from outright gifts of cash to volunteering, to including us in your estate planning. We appreciate your support and are available to discuss ways to give that meet your needs.
To save trees and time and for a shorter stack of mail, we encourage you to join our monthly giving program, the All Seasons Club, to spread your gift throughout the year.
Monthly giving shows your commitment to the Wallowa Country and provides Wallowa Land Trust with a reliable stream of revenue to sustain our ongoing programs.
Wallowa Land Trust relies heavily on its generous volunteers. We have tasks that match every interest, talent, and time commitment: from envelope stuffing and grant writing, to field work and natural resource assistance, to estate planning and accounting, to office support and database management, all the way to event planning.
Donated professional services are invaluable, although not usually tax-deductible. Legal help, assistance with estate planning and appraisals, graphic design, natural resources efforts, accounting, and public relations work are among many services which can help make a local land trust effective.
You can leave your own legacy of conserved lands in Wallowa County forever when you include Wallowa Land Trust in your will. A charitable gift from your estate to Wallowa Land Trust will protect a treasure: working farms and ranchlands, forests and wetlands, rivers and streams, scenic vistas and sacred places.
Donating a Conservation Easement is a lasting contribution to the community, future generations, and to the health and welfare of our valley, along with the wildlife and habitat of the region. In addition to these motivations for donating a Conservation Easement, donors may realize income and estate tax benefits.
