Land Gifts

Your donation of a parcel of land for conservation purposes preserves open space in perpetuity, protects fragile habitat, and may safeguard the survival of endangered or threatened species. The donation of land or a conservation easement can also make economic sense, often reducing estate tax and/or capital gains taxes on appreciated land.

A bargain sale allows you to realize some of the immediate income from the sale of your land while making it possible for Mianus River Gorge to purchase it. You sell your land for less than the fair market value and in the process avoid some capital gains tax and get an income tax deduction.
