Putting SRLT in your will

Putting SRLT in Your Will

In your will, you can leave a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or a specific asset of your estate to SRLT. Naming SRLT as a beneficiary of your estate can be a generous and financially responsible way to make a special gift which might not otherwise be possible during your lifetime.  Bequests can be unrestricted, which allows the funds to be applied to the most critical need or they can be designated for a specific area of SRLT’s work.  We currently have a dedicated reserve fund for easement stewardship.

While you should always consult with your legal advisor, documenting a bequest can be as simple as adding language to your will:  “I give and bequeath (_____% share of the residue of my estate) or ($____ of the residue of my estate) to Scenic Rivers Land Trust, Inc. (Federal identification number 52-1664141), a non-profit, charitable corporation headquartered in Annapolis, Maryland.
