Land trusts are very closely tied to the communities in which they operate. Moreover, land trusts' nonprofit tax status allows them to offer a variety of tax benefits. Donations of land, land preservation agreements or money may qualify you for income, estate or gift tax savings. Moreover, because they are private organizations, land trusts can be more flexible and creative than public agencies - and can act more quickly - in saving land.
