Ways to give

Ways to GiveWestern Reserve Land Conservancy is so grateful to all those who support our nonprofit organization and its mission.  We permanently protect the natural areas that are essential to fresh water, wildlife and plants. We preserve rich farmland before it is lost to poorly planned development.  We help revitalize urban neighborhoods. We could not carry out our important work without you. Charitable giving is critical to our success.  Philanthropic support enables us to protect land, air and water and help create healthier, more vibrant communities throughout Ohio.  We are passionate about our work, and we hope those who share our love of land, nature and community will consider a gift that will truly make a difference.  Please feel free to contact me or any member of our staff.

How to plan your gift

At Western Reserve Land Conservancy, we do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to conservation.  The same goes for gift planning.  The most successful planned gifts are those that meet your personal, family and charitable goals – and are flexible enough to meet your changing needs. Charitable giving options can be designed just for you.  You can help our nonprofit organization preserve precious natural resources and revitalize neighborhoods while also minimizing cost.

What to give

You do not have to be wealthy or a financial planning wizard to make a charitable contribution.  We keep things simple – down to earth, if you will.  We are grateful you have chosen to invest in a better world for future generations and will make sure you can also decide how to give, what to give and how your gift will be used. A number of options are available to you, depending on your goals.
