Additional ways to Support Opacum Land Trust:

Employee Matching Gift Programs
Many large companies will match donations made by employees. Ask your employer for details. Current matching partners include MassMutual, Karl Storz Endovision and National Grid.

Gifts of Appreciated Securities
As you contemplate your Annual Appeal Gift to Opacum Land Trust, you might consider a gift of appreciated securities in lieu of cash. The general appreciation in stock values may mean that you can make a gift that is particularly tax-advantaged. Gifts of appreciated securities held for more than one year are eligible for a charitable income tax deduction for their full market value (we advise that you check tax laws as they apply to your situation). In addition, if the securities have appreciated in value since you acquired them, you completely avoid the capital gains tax you would incur if you sold them. So your actual cost of giving is less than that of an equivalent gift of cash.

Help us to build our endowment: Make OLT the beneficiary of your IRA
Did you know that you can designate Opacum as the beneficiary of your IRA? All of your savings can be used for land protection with no income taxes due! Leave a legacy that helps to make a difference - designating a beneficiary is revocable at anytime, there is no cost, it's simple - you can likely do it on-line.

Thank You For Your Generous Support!
