Ways to Give


Individual Giving

Great Works Regional Land Trust is an independent nonprofit 501(c)(3) land trust. The majority of our funding comes from individuals like you, and we depend on this generosity to meet expenses, manage preserves, monitor easements, host programs and events, and undertake new projects.

Below you will find a list of giving opportunities to benefit GWRLT.

You can also make a one-time or monthly gift here. We encourage you to please consider becoming a member or pledge partner to help us sustain our impact by visiting our Become a Member page.

As a 501(c)(3), all donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.

Does your company have a workplace giving program? To pledge a payroll gift to GWRLT, find our name and charity ID in your employer’s charitable giving catalog and submit your pledge form to your workplace giving coordinator. Please note that donor information shared with our organization varies by workplace, so ask your employer what gift information will be provided to the recipient organization.

Many of our region’s largest employers participate in matching gift programs for the nonprofits their employees support.


GWRLT gratefully accepts and encourages gifts of stock. A tax-deductible gift of appreciated stock may help you give more – and will help GWRLT have a greater impact in the community.
