Annual Fund Gifts

If you are already a member, consider making an unrestricted gift to MFT and your donation will be put towards the area of greatest need. Annual Fund gifts can be made any time during the year. 

Stock Transfers

Your broker may assist you in making a gift stock to MFT. By donating shares of publicly traded stock, you may receive greater tax benefits than giving cash. To transfer stock to MFT, please contact Erin Cavallaro, Development Director, at erin@mainefarmlandtrust.org or (207) 338-6575.

Planned Giving

A bequest of cash or property to MFT made through a will or living trust will establish a legacy of giving on your behalf. By placing your assets in a charitable remainder trust, you can benefit from lifetime income from the trust and tax benefits at the same time. When the trust is terminated, the remainder would go to benefit MFT. For more information, please contact Erin Cavallaro, at erin@mainefarmlandtrust.org or (207) 338-6575.
