Your support helps us do more today to protect the Nevada of tomorrow.

If you have a strong connection to Nevada’s epic landscapes, its water, and its wildlife, and you want future generations to know the places that matter to you, Nevada Land Trust can help.  If you want to ensure that Nevada’s rivers are protected and that herds of deer and pronghorn continue to roam, we're here to help. And if you'd like to ensure that when the opportunity arises to conserve a vital spring, preserve family ranch land, or fill in the missing piece of a trail project, we will be here to do that - on your behalf. 

It’s in our name — trust. Since 1998, landowners, donors, agencies, and other partners have trusted us to get the job done. 60,000 protected acres later, NLT has shown it has the mettle, the relationships, and the ability to deliver conservation success.  You can trust that your legacy investment in the future of Nevada’s vital land and water will make a difference to the things you care about.  NLT cares about perpetuity – it’s part of our mission, and it’s part of our conservation toolkit. It’s a very long time horizon, but one that we approach thoughtfully and strategically. 

There are several ways to include NLT in your estate plans and only you can determine what’s best for you and your family. We recommend you consult your financial planner to discuss your options. Feel free to contact Alicia Reban, Nevada Land Trust Executive Director, at 775.851.5180 for additional information.

IRA/Retirement Fund Gifts
You can designate Nevada Land Trust as a beneficiary of all or part of the remainder of your IRA or retirement plan. Distributions of your IRA or retirement plan to your heirs can be subject to income and estate taxes. By designating our organization as beneficiary, 100% of the balance can be used by NLT.

Gifts of Securities 
Gifts of stocks, bonds and mutual funds can benefit you if you hold a security that has increased in value since you acquired it. By making a gift of stock to NLT, for instance, that you have held longer than one year, you may avoid paying capital gains tax or receive an income tax deduction.

Donor Advised Funds
A Donor Advised Fund is a philanthropic vehicle established at a community foundation, mutual fund company, or brokerage firm, which allows you to pool your money in one place and decide where to donate it later with an immediate tax benefit. 

Gifts of Land and Physical Assets
NLT accepts two types of real estate gift or bequest of marketable land or property.

  • Trade lands — Real estate gifts the donor permit us to sell, with the proceeds going to support our work.
  • Land for permanent protection — We are not able to protect all the real estate that is offered to us. The decision to accept or decline land is based on many factors, including the natural resource and historic/cultural values of the property and potential for future transfer of ownership.
