We invite you to support Tin Mountain Conservation Center and its mission in one of the following ways:
Tin Mountain Conservation Center Endowment Fund: Many revenue sources fund the daily work of fulfilling Tin Mountain’s mission. One small but growing source is the Tin Mountain Conservation Center Endowment Fund. Early Tin Mountain supporters had the foresight to create the endowment fund anticipating its growth would provide important future support for environmental education programs. As the principal grows, so too does the interest generated to support Tin Mountain programs. Donations to the Endowment Foundation remain a living legacy, ensuring that Tin Mountain Conservation Center will exist in perpetuity for hundreds of thousands of people to enjoy.
Annual Fund Donations: Your donation to the annual fund supports the general operations of Tin Mountain Conservation Center. Each fall, the Annual Fund Drive is launched inviting community members to show their support by making a tax-deductible contribution of any amount.
Company Matching Gifts Program: Does you company have a matching gifts program? If so, your donation could be doubled by simply completing your company’s necessary paperwork for your matching gifts program.Sponsorships: A variety of sponsorship packages are available for each of Tin Mountain Conservation Center’s popular annual events, specific programs, and exhibits. Many businesses and individuals sponsor the First Season Benefit Dinner/Auction, The Mt. Washington Auto Road Bicycle Hillclimb and Century Ride, Eco-Forums, the Nature Program Series, the Camp Brochure, and others. Sponsorship is a cost-effective way to stretch your marketing budget and link your business to the environmental education efforts at Tin Mountain Conservation Center.
Planned Giving: Tin Mountain Conservation Center will work to recognize and honor special donors who wish to make a planned gift. Planned giving is a donation to a charity that is coordinated with financial and estate planning to serve both philanthropic and personal needs. It can incorporate many different kinds of financial and tax benefits for the donor.
Bequests must satisfy personal and family obligations first; however, donors also may include Tin Mountain in their estate planning. Making Tin Mountain a beneficiary helps ensure that Tin Mountain‘s work will continue in future years while reducing estate taxes.
Charitable Remainder Trusts allow donors to transfer assets like stock to a trust and still retain its income for life. Ultimately, the assets become Tin Mountain‘s. It allows the donor to keep an asset’s income, avoid capital gains tax on its sale, take an income tax deduction, and make a commitment to Tin Mountain‘s future.
Charitable Lead Trusts allow donors to keep assets while giving Tin Mountain their income for a specified period of time. Donors receive an immediate gift tax deduction for the full present value of the asset. This is a good way to pass assets on to heirs at full value while supporting Tin Mountain.
In-Kind Donations and Our Wish List: In-kind donations of items that you believe we could use are always welcomed and appreciated. You also may consider donating an item on our Wish List. Your donation is tax-deductible and will help us continue our environmental education and preservation programs.
