LandCAN

A Rare Approach to Conservation

The Land Conservation Assistance Network offers a wealth of information to help private landowners (farmers, foresters, ranchers, and others) manage their land and make sustainable decisions. Our resources empower them to protect the land’s wildlife and agricultural production, while providing people across the nation with products that are part of everyday life.

For over 20 years, LandCAN has helped landowners steward their lands by providing the largest, most comprehensive conservation platform on the web today- offering over 200,000 pages of solutions, services, and tools to answer the most pressing issues of today, FREE OF CHARGE.

We are able to do this because of the generosity of foundations, corporations and businesses, and individuals. Every day, your dollars are helping our private landowners to have easy access to the invaluable resources that help them sustainably manage their property.

Other Ways to Give

There are many ways to make a long-term “investment” in LandCAN.

Memorial Gifts

Make a donation in memory of a loved one. When an 'In Memory' gift is received, we promptly send a personalized letter to the person or family indicated, notifying them of your thoughtful donation but not revealing the amount to maintain donor confidentiality. Each gift may be tax-deductible, and you will receive an acknowledgement for your donation.

Tribute Gifts

Make a donation to honor a family member, friend or coworker who has made a significant impact on you. Recognize him or her at a special birthday, anniversary, or just for any reason at all. When your gift is received at LandCAN, we promptly send a letter to the person, letting him or her know of your thoughtful donation but not revealing the amount.

Stock donations are one of the simplest ways to support LandCAN while taking advantage of tax benefits. Please call 207-847-0859 or email us.

When appreciated stock is donated, you do not take the capital gain into income, but the amount of the gift is still its full fair market value.

We encourage businesses to take advantage of our Recurring Giving Program.

For more information you can call us at (207) 847-0859 or email us.

Whether you are currently employed or retired, your employer may supplement your individual support with a matching gift. Many companies match the gifts of spouses, surviving spouses, and hours served as volunteer time. Check with your Human Resources department to determine if your company would support matching gifts to LandCAN.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please call 207-847-0859 or email us.
