Grassroots Toolkit: Spread the News of the Enhanced Easement Incentive
Congress recently renewed the enhanced tax deduction for conservation easement donations through December 31, 2013! That gives us just 12 months to educate potential easement donors about this important conservation tool and persuade Congress to make it permanent!
The Alliance has created this Grassroots Outreach Toolkit to assist land trusts with educating potential easement donors, elected officials and the media about this powerful incentive. By acting fast, farmers, ranchers and other landowners an receive full credit for conserving their land and will demonstrate the value of this incentive to policy makers. The toolkit provides the information needed to reach out to key audiences in a timely, cost-effective way.
