Leave a Legacy

Planned giving to a land trust has many benefits. And infinite beneficiaries.

Perhaps the most meaningful way to approach life is to consider what kind of legacy you want to leave and let that be the guiding influence. For those who treasure this good earth, particularly our abundant corner of it here in the Blue Ridge Foothills, it is possible to create a legacy of preserving nature through a planned gift to Foothills Conservancy of North Carolina.

Beneficiaries will be your children, their children and so on throughout the generations. Also the bald eagle, black bear, white irisette, our mountain streams, hidden waterfalls and the age-old trees that provide a blaze of glory every autumn. These and more will live on through your forethought and commitment, much to the joy of all who love nature.

Foothills Conservancy brings together land owners, public entities and private conservation partners who want to conserve the natural areas, agricultural lands, historic trails and forests that have defined this region for centuries.

We combine gifts from public and private sources to protect drinking water, preserve working farms, and protect wildlife habitat. We will work closely with you and your advisors to develop the optimum plan for you and your family.

Your gift will make all the difference in the world.

There are many ways to give to the Conservancy, with one that is just right for you. All bear the same result: to preserve the gift of earth that we’ve inherited so that future generations may embrace, benefit from and cherish as well. Your effort to save our corner of the world will have an immediate, tangible, lasting impact.

Your Legacy.

Places You Love.

Protected Forever.

Become an honored member of Foothills Conservancy’s “Pinnacle Society” with a bequest or other planned gift.

Many of these gifts cost nothing today-and often give money back as tax benefits or life income payments.

Your gift will save places you love in the Blue Ridge Foothills. Your legacy will live on in rich forest coves, clear streams and productive farmlands for generations to come.
