Thousand Islands Forever 

Legacy Program

What we do today, shapes the world for our children, our children’s children and future generations. Our story (our legacy) is what we leave behind. Will our stories inspire others to work to leave a smaller footprint on our earth and precious Thousand Islands region?  We at TILT believe that together through dedication to keeping this special place healthy and beautiful for all who live here, especially our children, our children’s children and forevermore – we can make a transcending difference.

Land conservation is an investment in our future. Once our natural areas are developed, we can never get them back. Unless we act now, our community’s most treasured resources may disappear before future generations have a chance to enjoy them. Since much of our work is about ensuring that the places we save today will be protected tomorrow, legacy gifts are indispensable to TILT and the entire River communities.

Leaving a legacy is one of the most valuable, enduring gifts you can ever give. For this reason we invite you to join others by including TILT in your estate plan and become a recognized member of Thousand Islands Forever Legacy Program.

There are so many ways to leave a family legacy that lasts forever. Options include, but are not limited to:

  • Bequests
  • Donor Advised Fund (DAF)
  • Life Insurance
  • Will or Revocable Living Trust
  • Retirement Plans
  • Real Property

Your planned gift to the Thousand Islands Land Trust is a powerful and meaningful way to create your legacy. You will be remembered as someone who helped the Thousand Islands Forever. Thank you for your consideration, the Thousand Islands Land Trust is grateful. We look forward to discussing your planned gift with you.
