Estates and Planned Giving



You can provide for the future of the Trail by naming the Appalachian Trail Conservancy as a beneficiary of your will or trust.  By doing so your estate may save taxes. Rather than leaving a sum certain, you can include language that refers to a percentage of your estate or a description of the property you wish to give.

For more information email us, or call us at 304.930.5054 so that we can assist you through every step of the process.

charitable remainder trust

You can donate real estate, highly appreciated stocks or cash to fund a charitable remainder trust that in return pays income for life, saves income and capital gains taxes, and also leaves a major gift for the ATC.

Again, we would be pleased to send a personalized gift illustration for you with financial calculations, an explanation of how the gift works, and information on how to complete a gift. (Minimums: age 50, $100,000)

For more information, please email or call Shalin Desai 304.930-.5054 or email sdesai@appalachiantrail.org.
