Support Our Work
With your help, the USVLT can maintain a healthy balance between community needs and land conservation. Here are some ways you can help protect our rural character and open spaces:
Become a Sustaining Steward
Sustaining Stewards are people who care about land conservation and want to make sure the daily work of a Land Trust is being supported today in order to achieve the conservation easements for tomorrow. Your automatic monthly donations provide the backbone for the land trust, enabling documentation and creation of easement baseline reports for prospective conservation properties, building foundation relationships, and supporting the administrative fabric that holds every Land Trust together! Monthly giving is easy, efficient, and convenient. Once you sign-up as a Sustaining Steward, your credit card or bank account will be debited once a month; however, you will only receive one gift acknowledgment letter at the end of the year (for tax purposes). You will continue giving at your current level unless you initiate a change. Click “donate” below to start!

Your financial donations of land, securities, bequests, and life-income gifts can provide significant tax advantages to donors while supporting the Trust’s land conservation programs. Please contact us for more information on these opportunities, or click “donate” below to make a donation of cash.
USVLT runs on volunteer energy! Whether you’re interested in helping with events, monitoring easements, or joining a working committee or our Board of Directors, we have a place for you.
