Gifts of Land

Leaving a permanent legacy for countless generations.

While most current members of the Foundation associate our land acquisition efforts with our ability to raise funds for individual purchases, many are surprised to learn that more than 75% of the land we own and manage was donated in whole or in part by nearly 300 individuals and families. Since 1963, their generosity and concern for the long term well-being of the Island and its fragile ecosystems has enabled the Foundation to preserve nearly a third of island as conservation land. These generous individuals, and the land donations that they made, may be found on our Land Donors page.

If you are interested in making a gift of land, please contact our Executive Director Jim Lentowski at jlentowski@nantucketconservation.org or 508-228-2884
