Estate Giving

Leave a legacy by making a charitable gift to the Thomas Jefferson Community Land Trust through your estate plans. Because so much of our work is about ensuring that we create permanently affordable assets, legacy gifts or planned gifts are indispensable to the TJCLT and the community. Creating an estate plan calls for careful planning with the help of an estate-planning attorney. If you are interested in making a gift through your estate plans, please contact us.
