Connecticut Land Conservation Conference

Raising Money for Now and for Later – Legacy Match Campaigns
Legacy Match Campaigns are matching grant campaigns that incentivize donors to disclose that they have left the land trust in their wills. For every donor who does advise the land trust of their bequest intentions in writing, a set amount of money is released from the grant. In this workshop, we will discuss securing the matching grant itself, planning out the campaign, and follow-through strategies. This is an idea that can and should be applicable everywhere and with land trusts of just about any size.
