Thousand Islands Forever

What will your legacy be? Would you like to support the Land Trust, but feel you don’t have the resources to make a lasting impact?

Join Thousand Islands Forever, TILT’s legacy program!

You can support programs that matter to you — like land conservation and environmental education — in a meaningful way that meets your financial goals.  And it is a wonderful way to create a family legacy that lasts forever.

There is a wide variety of ways to leave a legacy, which your financial planner or attorney can help you with. From a simple bequest in your will, to a charitable remainder trust, you can choose the best option for your family and your vision.

One TILT donor has indicated a specific cash gift in his will. Another donor intends to donate his property to TILT after his death, because his family isn’t interested in owning it in the future. These types of gifts can have an incredible impact on TILT’s future conservation efforts.

Planning for the future can be complicated. Do my heirs want to inherit my property? Do I have enough to support an organization that matters to me and still take care of my family? While these are questions that each of us has to answer for ourselves, there are options that may make it easier than you realize to leave a legacy that makes a difference to this community we all love so much.  

Members of Thousand Islands Forever represent a group of individuals who have made a lasting commitment to the conservation of the land in the Thousand Islands region. You can join them and ensure that our most cherished open spaces are protected for present and future generations.

For more information, please contact Terra Bach at the TILT office.

How will you be remembered?
