Turn your business interests into a gift for nature.

Gifts of business interests, like stock in a closely held corporation or shares in an investment partnership, can be beneficial for both you and The Nature Conservancy. Gifts are usually made outright, but in some cases may be used to fund a life-income arrangement such as a charitable remainder unitrust.


It’s great when you can protect the future of the natural world and your own financial future at the same time.

Every winter, birders flock to preserves and parks to tally species and take part in the Christmas Bird Count, a friendly competition that pits teams from across the contitent against each other. For five years, the team at The Nature Conservancy's Mad Island Marsh Preserve has come out ahead. Photo credit: © Karine Aigner
