Gifts of Business Interests

Give an interest in a closely held or family business and turn your business interests into a gift for nature.

How It Works:
  1. You give shares in a closely held corporation or an investment partnership to The Nature Conservancy. 
  2. The Nature Conservancy receives income distributions, and may sell the shares to a third party.

  • You may be able to use a business interest to create a life-income arrangement, such as a flip unitrust.
  • You have the satisfaction of making a significant gift that benefits both you and The Nature Conservancy during your lifetime.
