Grateful at end of 2016

NPAT is grateful for the support we received during 2016 ....YOUR SUPPORT MAKES A DIFFERENCE!!

Our programs are supported by gifts, donations, grants, bequests, membership dues and volunteer efforts of like-minded individuals!  As an NPAT supporter, you are in ‘good company’!  NPAT is one of over 30 Texas Land Trusts, focusing to conserve our state’s native lands, wildlife and waterways for those who will follow us!  Our collective efforts remind us of what’s really important.

You can select from several giving levels; we appreciate any level of contribution.  There are additional ‘charitable gift options’ (*) which you and your financial advisor will be able to review, evaluate and identify which is the most optimal.

Recurring Monthly Gift is a most valuable gift: sustaining, enabling us to predict income, and building strong relationships between NPAT and donors through educational opportunities, communication, connections to other landowners, and more! 

Some other gift options include:
Outright gift – A simple giving process generating the largest tax benefits for the donor.
Bequest – A gift designated in a will, preserving flexibility for the donor (who can change their mind), and preserve liquidity.
Retained life estate gift – Residence or a Farm: Donor or others continue living in/using the property, knowing that the charity will eventually take possession of the property.
Life insurance policies – Designating a charity as “Beneficiary”.
Charitable gift annuities – Providing fixed supplemental income for the life of the donor(s) and a flow of capital to the charity upon the death of the annuitant(s).
Charitable ‘remainder trusts’ –  Providing greater flexibility in designing the flow of income back to donors or others while also leaving capital for the charity upon death or earlier termination of the trust.

We depend on your support to help us conserve Texas prairies and to educate people about their value.  DONATE NOW*(NPAT is a 501(c)(3) organization; your membership dues and contributions are fully tax-deductible to the amount allowed by law.  We respond to your gift with a written acknowledgement that can be included with your tax filing.)
