The Many Ways To Build SILT:

  • Your tax-deductible donation of any size today will go to work immediately protecting land to grow healthy food. While all donations are welcomed, regular monthly donations help us plan for an entire year. 
  • A donation of some or all of your land will promise a future of sustainable food production. You can retain the use of your land and incorporate applicable tax benefits into your larger financial planning.*
  • Retain ownership of your land, but restrict its use to sustainable food production in the future. Donating an easement assures your land always grows healthy food. Contact us about a legal document (called an easement) that is attached to your deed. The economic value of your land will drop, but that difference in value is considered a tax-deductible donation by the IRS.*

Write to us for details about how your donation to SILT can help guarantee healthy, local food for Iowans and affordable land access for our farmers for generations to come.

*Please talk with your tax and financial advisers about the many tax advantages that may be available to you. Such donations require appraisals done by qualified appraisers.
