Land Donation

Why Donate Land to the Shenandoah National Park Trust? 

  • The land will become part of Shenandoah National Park and protected in perpetuity. 
  • You can leave a conservation legacy for your children, grandchildren, and future generations to enjoy. 
  • Enjoy certain tax benefits now. 
  • Enjoy recognition for the donation if that is something you would like. 
  • Transferring land to the National Park Service can be a multi-year endeavor. The Trust can take title in a much shorter time, steward it into NPS ownership while you enjoy the benefits of donation now. 
  • We are willing to work with you and look for creative strategies to help you meet your charitable and financial goals.   

NOTE: The Trust is not qualified to give, nor does it provide, tax or legal advice. It is important to consult with qualified professionals such as an attorney, accountant, or other tax or financial advisor to help fully understand the tax implications of a land or conservation easement donation.
