Leaving a bequest in your will ensures a lasting legacy in support of Maryland's forestry programs. This thoughtful gesture helps us sustain our mission beyond your lifetime, with the added benefit of being exempt from federal estate taxes. Consult your financial advisor or estate attorney to discuss the wording of your desired bequest.

Making a gift of stock is both simple and impactful. Not only does it support your community, but it may also offer tax advantages. If you've owned the stock for over a year, you can deduct its full fair market value, potentially reducing your tax liability and bypassing capital gains tax on the appreciated stock.

Join us in preserving Maryland's forests and ensuring a sustainable future. Your support, in any form, helps us make a meaningful difference.
