Your Legacy

For our childrens' future

Reasons for remembering the BRLC as you consider your legacy gifts:

  • You love the land, the natural beauty and open spaces of this area.
  • You value upper Bucks County's rural character and agricultural heritage.
  • You want to help protect upper Bucks County and preserve its farmland and natural resources for future generations.

As a community based non-profit organization, we rely on financial contributions from our members and supporters, be they individuals or businesses, to support our mission of preserving and protecting farmland and natural resources. We work to ensure the upholding of conservation easements in perpetuity.

Thus, our easements are created to last forever, creating a legacy for future generations.

Your tax-deductible gift to one of the funds below directly supports our preservation efforts and is a significant way for you to also be part of this legacy, or to memorialize a friend or family member who valued the land, natural resources, and agricultural heritage of this area.

Information on the funds you may want to consider is listed below.

Forever

PLANNED GIVING

You may designate BRLC as a beneficiary in your last will and testament.  This can be an important part of your estate plan and an opportunity to leave a meaningful legacy to a place we all love. 

The BRLC was established to preserve and protect land in perpetuity. Our operating expenses are kept low by the work of our many dedicated unpaid volunteers as well as the hard work of our staff members. Your bequest will help ensure the future of the organization and the work we do in placing and protecting easements and educating landowners and area residents to the benefits of protecting our resources.

One of our goals is to establish funding to be able to assist with the purchase of development rights, for those landowners who may not be in a position to donate the easement rights on their property. Your bequest could help us meet that goal, or be restricted to other uses you may specify.

The Bedminster Regional Land Conservancy would be honored to be named a beneficiary in your last will and testament and help you establish a meaningful legacy. Please contact us to discuss your needs. Call 215-795-2353 or use the “Contact” link at the top of this page.

BRLC MEMORIAL FUND

Honor a special person with a bequest.

You can request that tax-deductible donations be made to the BRLC Memorial Fund, in memory of a deceased loved one. We will run a memorial ad in the subsequent issue of  our newsletter, The Conservator,  and each donor will receive a complimentary copy of that issue.

The fund is permanently associated with a list of the names for whom memorial contributions were made. When money from the fund is used for a special purpose consistent with land preservation efforts, the fund will be recognized along with the list of memorial names.

Thus, the fund is a thoughtful way to memorialize a loved one who had a particular interest in the area and enjoyed our area’s beauty and natural resources.

You do not have to be a member to request that memorial contributions be made to the BRLC.

You can request that tax-deductible donations be made to BRLC Memorial Fund by contacting us on the "Contact" page or by mailing donations directly to:

BRLC, P. O. Box 208, Bedminster, PA 18910.

LANDOWNER EASEMENT ASSISTANCE FUND (LEAF)

You can make a tax-deductible contribution to our Landowner Easement Assistance Fund (LEAF).

This special fund was established to enable BRLC to provide assistance with costs associated with placing easement for those landowners who seek to preserve their property by donating an easement, but are unable to do so without some financial assistance. You may designate the township in which you would like the funds applied for our preservation efforts or leave it unrestricted.

Every penny in this fund is dedicated to that purpose; none of it is used for any other purpose.

You may use the "Additional Contribution" button on the Join & Support page or mail a check to BRLC, P. O. Box 208, Bedminster, PA 18910.
 

The future depends on you

GIFTS IN KIND

You can make tax- deductible contributions “in kind” including:

 

  • Designating the BRLC as beneficiary for securities such as stocks and bonds.
  • Donating the value of a conservation easement on property you own.
  • Providing services or other tangible items.


Whatever vehicle you choose to help support our mission, be assured that it will be appreciated, and most importantly, used wisely and frugally.   We can help you make donations when you contact us via the "Contact" page or 215-795-2352.
