We gratefully receive gifts online:

Donate by Check. Please make checks payable to: Lopez Community Land Trust and mail to P.O. Box 25, Lopez Island WA 98261

Give through your IRA. Your IRA plan administrator can help you transfer assets directly to Lopez Community Land Trust.  Donations to nonprofits made in this way are tax exempt. If you’re 70-1/2 or older on the day of the distribution, you may direct all or some of your IRA up to $100,000 to a qualified non-profit (like us); if you’re subject to a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) for your traditional IRA, your tax-exemption will only be on the amount that would have been taxable.

Employer matching gifts. Many employers match their employees’ donations to nonprofits.  Inquire with your employer’s human resources department.

Gifts of Stock. Please contact us at to make a gift of stocks.

We gratefully accept donations of real estate consistent with LCLT’s sustainable agriculture and affordable housing goals.

You can also set up monthly giving. Commitments to giving on a regular basis helps LCLT plan into the future. Knowing we can anticipate consistent donations increases our financial stability. You can set up automatic monthly giving by credit card online here.

Or make a designated gift. When you make a donation, note if you would like to give to our Annual Fund, to support all areas and general operations, or if you’ve like your donation to go to a specific area of interest. Options include:

LCLT Annual Fund / General Membership — gifts made to our annual fund, and for general membership provide the greatest flexibility in allocating our resources to where they are needed most.

Lopez Island Farm Trust & Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Development — these donations will contribute towards preserving agricultural land in perpetuity, programs related to sustainable agriculture and rural development, and more.

Affordable Housing Programs — these gifts will help build permanently affordable homes on Lopez, and support operations and programs related to affordable housing.

Len Kanzer Memorial Fund — Len Kanzer was an early board member of Lopez Community Land Trust. This fund, made in his memory, provides loans to LCLT leaseholders, enabling first time co-op members to purchase their home, or providing support in a time of need. This is a gift that keeps on giving: as a revolving loan fund, the interest accrued from loaning money out, is fed back into the loan fund, increasing the funds available for the next household.
