Many Ways You Can Help:

  • Your tax-deductible donation of any size today will go to work immediately protecting land to grow healthy food.
  • 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.
