Other Ways to Give

Become a Monthly Donor
"Monthly giving is affordable, secure and easy. I can change the amount or frequency of my donation any time. I'm in total control," says LandChoices' member Sue Choma.

Don Choma adds "I'd recommend online monthly giving to anyone thinking of investing in the environment. It's affordable as you amortize it over the year using your credit or debit card. It's allowing our family to invest a larger amount than one lump sum."

Help change for the better what America will look like by becoming a LandChoices' Major Donor. Your contribution of $1,000, $5,000, $10,000, $25,000, $50,000, $100,000 or more will help LandChoices accomplish set goals to preserve land and change land development in America.

Gift of Stock
Gifts to LandChoices in the form of stocks, bonds or mutual funds appreciated in value can be an easy way for you to generously support LandChoices and may also be attractive to U.S. donors under current tax laws.

With a gift of stock owned for more than one year, you are entitled to a charitable deduction for the full market value at the time the gift is made. You also will avoid a capital gains tax on the appreciation in value.

Making this transfer is simple. Because electronic transfers of stock are made without identifying the donor, please let us know in advance about the stock and number of shares you would like to donate. Ask your broker or bank to include your name in the transaction description to ensure proper identification and acknowledgement of your gift.

Or you can fill out LandChoices' Donate Stock form and mail it to us.

To let us know, or if you have questions about making a gift of appreciated stock, please contact Kirt Manecke at 248-685-0483 or at .

We recommend consulting a qualified legal or financial advisor for more information on the tax deductibility of gifts of securities.

You may wish to give a tax-deductible gift in memory of or in honor of someone you would like to have remembered. Please include full name of person gift is in memory/honor of.

Workplace/Employee Giving
You may be able to DOUBLE YOUR DONATION! Many companies offer a donation matching program where the company matches the donation of their employees to the non-profit organization. Give a gift – of cash or stock – and multiply it through your employer's matching gift program.

Many companies have a matching gift program to support employee interests and demonstrate their commitment to the community. Around the world, corporations, foundations and associations match their employees' charitable donations, sometimes for as much as twice the original gift. Matching gifts are an easy way to boost your contribution.

Matching gift programs vary by company, so please check with your human resources office to find out whether they match employee donations, and if they do, whether Landchoices is eligible to receive matching gifts. Click here for a partial list of companies that participate in matching gifts programs.

If LandChoices meets the guidelines for your company's matching gift program, obtain a matching gift form from your human resources office, complete the donor section, and submit it along with your donation check or credit card authorization to:

Kirt Manecke
PO Box 181
Milford, MI 48381

We will verify receipt and return the form to your company for matching funds.

Wills and Bequests-Leave Your Legacy
Bequests under your will or living trust provide estate tax relief to your estate and may enable you to provide larger benefits to your loved ones since charitable gifts are not taxable. Some people choose to set aside a certain portion of their estate in their will for their favorite charities because they want to provide these charities with long-term support while also taking advantage of estate tax charitable deductions.

Please let us know if you have included LandChoices in your estate planes so we can thank you for your very generous contribution.

Suggested wording for bequests:

"I give LandChoices, a Nonprofit Corporation, incorporated in Michigan, and having its principal offices in Milford, Michigan, 48381 the sum of $_________ (or alternately, _____ percent of the residuary of my estate), for its general purposes to preserve our nation's land."

LandChoices is 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Your contributions are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.

Thank you for your support!
