Our members are a diverse, creative bunch, solidly committed to land conservation in Vermont. We find them wildly interesting and thought you might too.

Marsha Drake of Williston, is a jewelry designer and for five years has chosen to give a percentage of the sales from her business, Marsha Drake Jewelry, to the Vermont Land Trust.

Marsha says: "Having grown up in Vermont, I'm pleased to give to an organization that is working with landowners and farmers to help keep this state a beautiful place to bring up my own children. Vermont is well known for its open pasture land and lush green forests. I thank Vermont Land Trust for helping to keep our state known for these things."

We love hearing from our members and sharing interesting stories. Let us know if there is someone you think we should feature for their conservation efforts with VLT. Contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. at (802) 262-1229.

Many of our members prefer contributing stock, rather than writing a check, to fulfill their annual gift. By giving appreciated property (for example, stocks or bonds) you can avoid paying capital gains taxes on the appreciation, receive a tax deduction on the full value of the gift, and support the Vermont Land Trust at a lower cost to you.

Donations of stock can also be used to endow an annual gift or establish a planned gift, such as a charitable gift annuity.

For more information about gifts of stock or other appreciated property, or to discuss planned giving opportunities, call Jane Coffey at (802) 262-1204.

How to Transfer Stock to the Vermont Land Trust

To make a gift, please notify your broker in writing that you are making a charitable gift of stock to the Vermont Land Trust.

Please call us or have your broker contact Jane Coffey to notify VLT of the transfer. This is important because your name will not be included in the wire transfer to our broker.
