Ways to Give
We welcome the support of anyone who views our work as a means to fulfilling their hopes and aspirations for protecting our wild places.
-Brad Borst, President
The Wilderness Land Trust works every day to protect our National Wilderness Preservation System. We are small and focused, and we work tirelessly to put every donated dollar to work when private property within designated or proposed wilderness goes up for sale. It’s our mission to acquire these threatening “holes” within the fabric of our wilderness before they are sold to yet another private landowner who will spend another generation developing private dreams.
The Wilderness Land Trust exists to protect and pass on to future generations a collection of irreplaceable spaces and a passion for wilderness.
How can you make wilderness a part of your legacy?

If you enjoy hiking, hunting, camping or exploring in designated wilderness areas, or simply want to know that the wild places you cherish will be there for future generations, we ask for your generous support today.

The easiest way to make a gift of stock is to transfer the shares electronically. Tell your broker or financial advisor you would like to make a gift of stock and give them the following information.

Gift or Loan Funds for a Specific Project
With active projects in nearly every western state, you’ll likely find a project near or within a wild place you and your family love. Help us protect your favorite place with a gift to specifically help on a project, or a no-interest loan to fund the acquisition of a property. Upon completion of the project, forgiving a portion or the entirety of your loan is a wonderful way to support the Trust, or simply ask that we reinvest your dollars in the next project.
