Additional Ways to Give

Become a Monthly Donor


Sign up to become a monthly donor (or choose a different frequency) and your gift will automatically be sent to the Land Conservancy on a schedule that works best for you, with no reminders from us. Not only is this the easiest way to give, but it provides the Land Conservancy with the security and confidence it needs to be able to do the work of protecting natural lands on a monthly basis.

To make a recurring gift, visit the donation page, chose the amount you would like to give, and then chose the frequency of the gift in the section below. You can chose a start and end date and you can make an account that allows you to change your information at your convenience.

Planned Giving & Bequests


Common throughout West Michigan, the oak tree is one of the enduring symbols of strength, stability, and timelessness. As such, it is the perfect symbol of the Land Conservancy of West Michigan’s Legacy Society. By including us in your estate plans, you will join a group of dedicated people–our Circle of Oaks–who are committed to sustaining the work of the Land Conservancy for future generations.

Through planned giving, supporters of the Land Conservancy of West Michigan can leave a legacy that will help ensure that special natural areas are protected forever. With planning, people of all income levels have the capacity to create a legacy. Click here to learn more about planned giving opportunities.

Giving Stocks or Securities


A donation of stocks or securities not only goes toward the long-term protection of natural lands, but might also benefit you. You may be able to avoid capital gains taxes and may receive a tax deduction on the fair market value of the gift. Contact your financial advisor for full benefits and details and be sure to let us know if you’ve made a gift. Contact Brian Obits, Grants and Database Manager, for more information about donating stocks or securities or for transfer instructions and account information.
