What will your legacy be?

Perhaps you choose to live in the Wallkill Valley region or spend time here because the land inspires you. Maybe you feel connected to the land through family memories, the local farm where you buy food, a bike trail, or the view of valley looking down from the Shawangunk Mountains.

You may even be considering how you can make a significant difference in conserving what makes this region so special—its land and rural heritage. Conservation supporters who have made planned gifts have had an extraordinary impact on our work.

While planned gifts take many forms, they are the result of careful planning and an intention to make a lasting gift. These could include bequests made in a will, naming the WVLT as a life insurance beneficiary, or using tax-wise giving options such as charitable gift annuities or remainder trusts.
