We appreciate your interest in including the Nantucket Land Council in your estate plans. If you notify us of your plans, we would be honored to include you in our Legacy Circle, either as a named or anonymous member. If you have already included the Nantucket Land Council in your estate plans, thank you! Please let us know, so that you can enjoy the benefits of being a member of our Legacy Circle, including invitations to special events.
By including the nonprofit Nantucket Land Council in your estate plans, you are leaving a legacy and making a statement about what has been important in your life. Your gift will provide a source of continuing support for environmental action on Nantucket.

There are a variety of ways you can make a gift.  The NLC has provided sample language for various forms of bequests. However, these are just suggestions. We encourage you to consult your attorney and financial advisors to make certain that your gift fits well into your overall circumstances and planning. If you’d like to discuss any of these options please contact Development Director Ema Johnson.
