During the last two years, the Wilderness Preserve has been the recipient of three land donations totaling 123 acres. Two donations were from estate settlements and one was from a member who wanted to have their land protected from future development.
The MIWP is a federally registered 501c3 charitable land trust so all donations, including land, are 100% tax deductible for the donating party. The value of the donation can be determined by the appraised value that appears on your property tax statement or it can be valued and documented by a real estate professional with experience in land values on the island.
If you are settling an estate that contains your family’s favorite hiking/hunting land or you simply want to preserve your land from future development, please consider donating your land to the MIWP. We will pay all related closing costs. The title transfer can be completed in as little as two weeks without having to pay a commission to a real estate agent. Contact Tom Kromroy at 651-271-8533 to discuss the land donation process.
