Thinking of Including

Three Rivers Land Trust in

Your Estate Plans?

When you support Three Rivers Land Trust through a planned gift, you’re leaving a legacy that will conserve the land cherished by our communities, and protect the places that make our landscape extraordinary. The Land Trust is committed to conservation in the Sandhills and Piedmont today, for a better tomorrow.  

Would you like to make a lasting and powerful impact on the conservation of vital natural areas? Please consider creating a meaningful, lasting legacy by including TRLT in your will, trust or other charitable planned gift.

Your contribution will do so much to make a positive impact in your community – by promoting education and outreach, ensuring the Land Trust’s long-term success, managing conservation properties in perpetuity, and enabling the Land Trust to acquire more land and conservation easements to ensure their perpetual protection for years to come.

Thank you for supporting Three Rivers Land Trust, and thank you for generously considering a planned gift to support our ongoing mission.

“One of the things I realized that would give me the most happiness and piece of mind after I am gone is to take what I have and leave it to Three Rivers Land Trust to protect more land. In terms of leaving a legacy, I don’t know what more you could do for future generations than to protect these properties in perpetuity”

Tom Kirkman, TRLT member
