Beyond straightforward donations, individuals, corporations and landowners can also help The Bruce Trail Conservancy in preserving Niagara Escarpment land through:


Planned Giving

With a planned gift, your commitment is made in the present, but the gift is realized in the future. Planned gifts include:

  • Bequests in a Will - By making a bequest in your will to the Conservancy you can show your commitment to securing a natural legacy for future generations.
  • Life Insurance - When you give a gift of life insurance to the BTC your regular monthly or yearly payment can provide the means to make a meaningful contribution without diminishing the value of your estate.

  • Annuities and Trusts - These gifts allow donors to make a sizeable commitment to the Conservancy while retaining the right to the income or use of the real property for the duration of their life or the term of the trust. Assets placed in the trust may include: cash, stocks, bonds, securities, real estate and other investments.
  • Gifts-In-Kind - Tangible property (for example: real estate, artwork, securities) can be donated to the BTC
