$1,000 match will be donated in your honor when you inform JMLT of your legacy gift

John Muir Land Trust is committed to protecting open space for generations to come. We can only do this thanks to the generosity of our supporters, both today and in the future. One of the most impactful ways you can support JMLT is by including us in your long-range financial planning. A legacy gift through your estate can ensure that JMLT continues to preserve the most beautiful places in the East Bay for future generations to enjoy.

Today, members of our Board are inviting you to join them in securing the future of these lands through their Legacy Match Challenge. For every legacy disclosure JMLT receives, they will make a $1,000 gift to JMLT to honor the donor, up to $30,000.

How the Legacy Match Challenge Works

For every intention we receive, members of our Board will match it with a $1,000 gift, up to $30,000. This means that your legacy gift can have twice the impact, helping JMLT protect open space today and for generations to come!
