Planned Giving

You can create a conservation legacy! By holding properties in trust for public benefit, DRA has made a promise to care for special natural lands forever. Planned gifts strengthen DRA’s capacity to carry out that promise, enriching the community for years to come.

Conserved lands protect clean water, enhance community resiliency, improve health, support economic sustainability, and provide opportunities for recreation and reflection. They also help us remember who we are and where we are. DRA’s record of conservation success and careful stewardship of both its lands and its fiscal resources suggests that planning with DRA in mind is a good bet.

With its many educational programs for youth (and adults), outdoor ice skating rink, home for the Farmers’ Market, and connections with the local schools, DRA is an enduring institution that not only conserves natural land but makes it central to the life of our community.

Vehicles for planned giving are numerous and some are more complex than others. We’d be pleased to speak with you about options – please contact the Executive Director or a member of our board.
