Planned Giving


Your Legacy

Planned giving can benefit you and your family while protecting nature for future generations. Through planned giving you pass on your values and leave a lasting impact.

Estate Planning

You can make a gift in your estate plan by naming the Virginia Eastern Shore Land Trust as a primary or contingent beneficiary of your life insurance policy, retirement plan, financial accounts, personal property, real estate or other assets. Making a planned gift may provide tax savings or reduce the tax burden for your heirs. VES Land Trust recommends you consult with your financial or tax advisor and attorney or estate planner when establishing or revising your estate plans.
