Ways to Give

Donate Stock or Mutual Funds: Direct transfers of stock or mutual funds can be made from your broker to KNLT. Please let us know that you plan to initiate the transfer and contact Caroline Meena at Stock Yards Bank & Trust at (800) 625-9066 for transfer details.
Give from your IRA:  IRA Charitable Rollover allows individuals who have reached age 70 1/2 to donate directly from their Individual Retirement Account (IRA), without treating the distribution as taxable income. Consult your plan administrator or tax advisor for more information about these giving options.
Make a Tribute Gift: Give a gift in memory of a loved one or in honor of a special person in your life. Simply write a note to accompany any form of payment or use our secure donation page and select the check box that indicates “I would like to dedicate this donation” to share information about your tribute gift. KNLT will send a note to your loved one or a family member to show how much you care.
Join our Wildlands Legacy Society:  Including a gift to KNLT in your estate plans ensures that we can continue our work for generations to come. Download our brochure to learn more:  Wildlands Legacy Society brochure . Members of the Wildlands Legacy Society receive a luna moth lapel pin and will be invited to special events. Contact your financial advisor regarding planned giving, including bequests (will or trust), life insurance, IRA, 401(k) or pension plan donations, and gifts of stock, cash or real estate.
Give an Acre or Give a Square Mile: KNLT’s mission is made possible by gifts of all sizes. We especially depend on donors who are able to give unrestricted gifts at or above the leadership level ($1,000 annually). A gift at this level supports the overall mission of KNLT, but is symbolic of the average cost per acre of Kentucky wildlands. Our One Square Mile Award honors those who have made donations over their lifetime that represent the cost of an entire square mile of wildlands (640 acres). Contact Nicole at (502) 314-4395 or Nicole@KNLT.org to learn more about these and other giving levels.
Employer Matches can double your giving. Ask your Human Resources Department about charitable matching options.
Donate a car, truck, boat or farm machinery to support KNLT. Learn more about our partnership with CARS by visiting Careasy.org/kentucky-natural-lands-trust or calling (855)500-7433.
Give to KNLT while you shop. It’s easy to support KNLT by using Kroger Community Rewards (org #VQ829).
No matter how you choose to give or how much, Kentucky Natural Lands Trust is grateful for your gift. We understand that protecting an interconnected world depends on the power of partnership. With you by our side, KNLT can fulfill our mission of connecting, protecting and restoring wildlands in Kentucky today and for years to come.

“My father (David Burns) once told me that nothing lasts – not even the mountains – unless you buy them and put covenants on them to protect them into perpetuity. He wanted the backbone of Kentucky to last. He wanted something that would span generations. He wanted his gift to be the Mountain.”
