If you would like to see your land preserved for conservation purposes, then bequest is the easiest and most common method to leave your legacy for generations to come. By adding the Allegan Conservation District to your will or living trust, you guarantee the preservation of your land, while still maintaining control of your assets. You can also make any changes, giving you great flexibility. Board of Director’s approval is needed to complete the donation. Please contact the Allegan Conservation District for instructions on how to donate your property.


Another easy way to impact the environment without breaking the bank is to add the District as a beneficiary to your 401K, IRA, Roth IRA or any retirement plan. A great benefit is that you will receive a charitable income tax deduction by just changing the ownership and beneficiary of the policy. Any additional contribution to the policy’s premium will give you additional charitable tax deductions as well. Partial contribution is also possible if you designate only a portion of the coverage to the District.

Any retirement plan gift would be transferred to the Allegan Conservation District free of estate tax and/or income tax.


By adding the Allegan Conservation District to your beneficiary list of your life insurance policy, you help maintain and restore our water, air and environment. You may leave total or partial donation without the heavy taxation of estate and income taxes. An easy way to leave a legacy that will help restore wetlands, enhance grasslands and educate our future environmental enthusiasts.
