The Northern Connecticut Land Trust is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization in the northeastern part of Connecticut. As the only non-profit, open space protection group in the area, dedicated landowners come to the Trust to protect their heritage.
Landowners may transfer land as a gift, sold at fair market value or the sale of land to the Trust below market value can offer income tax benefits to the donor.
- Deed restrictions, lifetime use by the donor, and other stipulations are opportunities for donors to consider. Each parcel is managed according to the donor's wishes through our monitoring and stewardship programs.
- Conservation easements (whereby landowners may donate or sell development rights to their land while maintaining ownership and other property rights) is another option.
