There are a number of ways you can make a deeper commitment to the our mission of creating powerful connections between our community and our natural world to inspire conservation of land and water ensuring a healthy life for all.

Gift of Land Protection

You can contribute directly to conservation by protecting the property you own in Midcoast Maine. Many options exist to conserve land; a donation of either the land/title or a conservation easement on the land can result in tax advantages for you. Any land conservation project would be tailored to your needs. Contact Anna

Planned Giving

A gift to Midcoast Conservancy in your will or trust can leave a lasting legacy in your name. Even families with modest means can make a tremendous impact by planning a gift through their will or estate plan. We have a growing group of Legacy Partners who have chosen to do this.  Contact Pete Nichols

Railsback Legacy Program & memorial gifts

When Alan Railsback passed away in 2013, family and friends came together to honor a man who had worked much of his life to protect the Damariscotta Lake Watershed by creating the Railsback Fund. Alan was a tremendous catalyst for change and had a big heart. The fund continues today and as of 2017, over $40,000 has been donated. Each year we hire a promising young professional to be our Railsback Fellow to work in the area of land and water conservation. A variety of professional development experiences are offered and they get to learn how to help us care for the watershed that Alan so loved.

Memorial gifts are a special way to honor the people we love. Contact Pete Nichols for more information.
