San Isabel Legacy Society

One way to make an impact on conservation in Colorado, now and in the future, is through a planned gift to San Isabel Land Protection Trust. Gifts of life insurance or annuities or remembering San Isabel Land Protection Trust in your will may help you achieve your financial and estate goals while leaving a lasting legacy for future generations. These gifts may bring tax benefits as well.

Planning Your Legacy

Good planning is key to creating the kind of legacy important to you. San Isabel Land Protection Trust has developed a guide, “Planning Your Legacy,” to help you plan your will and trust and prepare for potential estate decisions. The guide describes many of your options and helps you gather the information you need to get the job done.

  • "The Hood Family placed a conservation easement on our ranch because it gave us a chance to preserve the land as undeveloped property while allowing the operation of the ranch to continue to make ranching decisions as we have always done. It also provided funding to establish retirement funds and an investment portfolio, providing long-term income."

    – Keith Hood, fifth-generation rancher

We have protected more than 42,000 acres through 134 conservation easements.

Conservation easements guarantee long-term protection – through generations of landowners.
