Conserve the character of Mendocino County by naming Mendocino Land Trust in your estate plans. By doing so, you will help ensure this legacy continues for generations to come.

Several charitable giving options are available that allow you to make a gift with long-term impact. Your personal circumstances will dictate the best way for you to make a lasting impact with your donation. There are multiple types of planned gifts.

We encourage you to talk with your attorney, financial planner or tax specialist before deciding on a course of action.
