What will your legacy be?

Consider putting the WVLT in your will, trust, or estate plan, and join a group of committed conservationists that want to ensure the land is here for future generations – The WVLT Guardians


Do you live here because the Wallkill Valley region inspires you? Are you 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? Do you want to make a significant difference in conserving what makes this region so special—its land and rural heritage?

While planned gifts take many forms, they are the result of careful planning and an intention to make a lasting gift. These 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. 

Supporters who have made legacy/planned gifts have had an extraordinary impact on our work.

Become a WVLT Guardian today by adding a simple provision to your will such as “I give (specific amount, percent or residue) to the Wallkill Valley Land Trust, Inc. (tax ID #22-2867070), having its principal offices at 40 Sunset Ridge Road, Suite 220 New Paltz, NY 12561, for its general purposes.” And then let us know using the form below.
