Planned Gifts

You can play a direct role in ensuring that our work to protect and steward open spaces continues now and for future generations.

Your legacy gift can be either dedicated to general support or restricted to our endowment, a revolving capital fund utilized time and time again for decades to come. Because Payette Land Trust is recognized as a tax-deductible 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, any bequest you make will be 100% deductible, thus reducing the size of your taxable estate for federal and state estate tax purposes.


IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution Giving

The Individual Retirement Account (IRA) Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) allows you to make a direct distribution from your IRA account to support Payette Land Trust. If you are 70½ or older, you may directly transfer up to $100,000 from your IRA to Payette Land Trust. These gifts are not taxable and qualify toward your required minimum distribution at age 72 or greater.

Gifts made from your IRA are not reportable as taxable income. At age 72 or greater, your gift distribution qualifies toward your required minimum distribution (RMD) for the calendar year, which may lower your income tax burden.
