JMLT will promptly acknowledge your gift with a card to the person or family you ask us to notify. If it’s a milestone to remember, it’s worth a tribute gift to JMLT. Make a tribute gift now.


Gifts of stock are an easy way to make a lasting contribution to JMLT while realizing significant tax benefits. By donating appreciated securities held for at least one year, you can take a tax deduction for the fair market value of your gift and avoid paying capital gains taxes. JMLT sells donated stocks tax-free, using 100% of your gift to support our land conservation efforts. Please follow these instructions for making a tax-deductible gift of stock, bonds or mutual fund shares to John Muir Land Trust. Donors will receive a formal acknowledgment and tax substantiation upon successful completion of a gift.  Learn more
