Providing for LRCT in Your Will or Estate Plan

Leave a Legacy for Future Generations

Would you like to make a lasting impact on the conservation and stewardship of the natural heritage of New Hampshire’s Lakes Region?

When you provide support for the Lakes Region Conservation Trust in your will or estate plan, you join a group of exceptional supporters committed to conserving the special places that define our unique region for future generations.

Define Your Vision

Whatever the size of your estate, planning is essential to ensure that your goals for your assets are fulfilled. Planned giving can take many forms and, depending on your particular situation, there could be financial and/or tax benefits to making a planned gift.

If you wish to consider a planned gift to LRCT, we would be pleased to assist you in defining your vision for this investment and directing your gift in a way that will best fulfill your wishes for the future.

Our staff and advisors are available to meet with you to discuss your objectives and work with you on this essential planning. In addition, we encourage you to consult qualified professionals (e.g., an attorney or financial advisor) as you move forward.

LRCT Legacy Fund at NHCF

Thanks to the extraordinary support for former LRCT Board of Trustees Chair Peggy Merritt and her husband Ron Lawler, LRCT and the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation (NHCF) established the Lakes Region Conservation Trust Legacy Fund. This fund provides an additional giving option for donors who wish to invest in the long-term sustainability of LRCT’s land conservation and stewardship work, and it allows LRCT and LRCT donors to benefit from NHCF’s expertise and professional assistance regarding planned giving vehicles, such as charitable gift annuities.

For more information about the Legacy Fund at NHCF, please contact LRCT President Don Berry at or 603-253-3301.

The LRCT Legacy Society honors individuals who provide future support for LRCT through a planned gift. If you intend to make a planned gift to LRCT, we encourage you to share your plans with us in advance so that we can include you in the Legacy Society.

If you are considering making a planned gift to the Lakes Region Conservation Trust or would like further information on providing for LRCT in your will or estate plan, please contact LRCT President Don Berry or 603-253-3301.
