Gift and Estate Planning

The generosity of our donors safeguards ASA’s vital efforts to conserve farmland for future generations.

Legacy gifts, also known as planned gifts, allow donors to earmark various types of assets for philanthropic purposes. Because some gifts provide tax benefits to the donor and/or beneficiaries, we recommend talking to a financial advisor or estate planner when structuring a donation strategy.

Help us protect local farmland and working forests from encroaching development by including ASA in your will or estate plans.

The most popular planned gift is a bequest, made through your will. This gift may be for a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate or the residual. For more information and specific language to use when making a bequest, click here.

You may also leave a bequest through your IRA, with life insurance, or by deeding your land. For more information, click here

Have you already included ASA in your estate plans? If so, please let us know so that we can honor your commitment and welcome you into the Legacy Society.

Bequest Challenge When you include ASA in your will, trust, or estate plans--for any amount or any percentage of your estate--we receive a $500 cash donation from a generous donor to support our ongoing farmland protection efforts! All bequest intentions—old or new—will be matched.
