Our donors and volunteers are the reason we are able to conserve, care for, and connect with land in San Luis Obispo County. Together, we make sure that wild, natural places exist for our enjoyment today and for future generations to enjoy forever.

Recurring Giving

Providing sustaining support for The Land Conservancy is easier than ever with our automatic recurring billing option. This secure and simple tool allows you to specify a donation amount that will be automatically billed to you at an interval of your choice. Simply choose the amount and frequency  (monthly, quarterly, or yearly) to begin your sustaining donation and earn special benefits.

Employer Giving

Most large companies in our area have a matching program for their employees – including PG&E, ConocoPhillips, Apple, ING, and General Electric.  Many of these companies even provide matching gifts for retirees and volunteers. Double the impact of your donation by asking your employer to match it. Check with your HR staff to find what your company can do.

Land, Real Estate and Easement Donations

Our professional staff and Board of Trustees have decades of experience helping private property owners leave a lasting legacy of land conservation.  In addition to conservation properties, gifts of commercial or residential real estate are greatly appreciated. Contact us to determine the best way to leverage your donation for community good. More information for landowners considering a conservation legacy can be found here.
