Support Planned Giving Draft

Planned Giving

Even when we are no longer walking the earth, the land we lived on – the land we loved – will remain. Including Cardinal Land Conservancy in your estate plans allows you to choose how the land you love will exist for future generations. 

Including Cardinal in your estate plans, whether through a monetary gift or a gift of land, you will join the Cardinal Wings Program. Cardinal Wings members will get invited to special programming throughout the year. The programs will allow you to understand the impact your planned gift will have on Cardinal’s mission of preserving and protecting land in Southwest Ohio into perpetuity.

  • Land Legacy Program
  • Bequests

Consider donating your land to Cardinal. Cardinal will accept gifts of land, make sure that they are properly preserved into perpetuity, and will sell the land to an appropriate buyer. Your land will be protected forever, and Cardinal will benefit from the gift of the sale.

If preserving and protecting the land in Southwest Ohio, the land we love, is important to you, consider leaving a bequest gift to Cardinal. When you include Cardinal in your estate plans, you are choosing clean water, food security, and access to greenspace are part of your legacy.

Talk to your legal advisor about how to add Cardinal Land Conservancy to your estate plans.
