Workplace Giving

Many companies offer matching gift programs where the company will match a donation made by an employee to a nonprofit organization. Inquire with your employer to see if it offers this program, and find out how to participate.

If your employer offers a United Way Giving Campaign, simply write in Palmer Land Trust on the designated form.

IRA Distribution

Charitable contributions directly from your IRA count toward your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD). In December 2015, Congress voted to make permanent the exclusion from income, of up to $100,000 per person, per year, for Individual Retirement Account (IRA) distributions which are given directly to charities. This is a wonderful way to turn your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) into a meaningful gift for Palmer Land Trust while realizing significant tax savings. Consult your financial advisor for more information.

Gifts of Physical Assets

If you are interested in donating real estate, automobiles, or other physical assets to Palmer Land Trust, please contact our office at [email protected] or by calling 719-632-3236..
