The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) accepts donations of land in fee-simple donations (i.e., title) or donations of conservation agreements.
How does it work?
The value of the donation for receipt purposes is based on the appraised value as determined by an independent AACI-certified appraisal.
For donations of conservation agreements, the land is valued both before and after the restrictions are imposed and the value of the conservation agreement is the difference.

If you are an American citizen who owns land in Canada and is interested in donating it - while potentially avoiding capital gains, being able to claim a U.S. tax deduction and helping to protect nature all at the same time - we would be delighted to discuss the potential opportunity with you.
For more information on donating land or conservation agreements, please contact the NCC Regional office near you.

Due to limited resources, we must assess and prioritize potential land/easement donations to ensure that they fit within our programs and science-based priorities.
