Monthly Giving Program

TLC offers a monthly giving option for those who would like to increase their giving or spread their contributions throughout the year. The TLC Steward program allows donors to make a monthly credit card gift ($10/month minimum) to directly support our work and mission. For more information, visit our Monthly Giving information page. 

River Society

Triangle Land Conservancy’s River Society members are among our most generous supporters, making yearly Annual Fund gifts of $1,000 or more. River Society members are ambassadors for local conservation as their leadership gifts help set the pace for TLC’s projects to safeguard clean water, support local farms and food, protect wildlife habitat and connect people with nature. For more information, visit out River Society page. 

Workplace Giving

Triangle Land Conservancy is a proud member of Earth Share North Carolina (ESNC), a nonprofit helping North Carolinians support the environmental groups they value through workplace giving. Find out more on our Workplace Giving page. 

Planned Giving

Planned gifts are a wonderful way to carry on your legacy and commitment to TLC and its mission. Those who make planned gifts to TLC become members of the Heritage Society, recognizing their dedication to protecting our land for future generations. Find out more on our Planned Giving page.

Honor and Memorial Gifts

A tax-deductible contribution to TLC can be a wonderful way to honor or remember your friends and loved ones. To make an honor or memorial gift, select that box when making your gift online. TLC will also send notification of your gift if you provide that information in the notes field of the online donation form. You may also designate the option to make a one-time honor and memorial gift, opting out of future membership mailings from TLC.

Honor and memorial gifts are updated online monthly. Click here to view a listing of the most recent honor and memorial gifts. 

Gift Memberships

You can give a gift membership to TLC at any time during the year. To make a gift membership, select that box when making your gift online.  TLC will also send notification of your gift–including a welcome packet for new members–if you provide that information in the notes field of the online donation form

Matching Gifts

You can increase the value of your Annual Fund gift. Many employers offer matching gift programs that may double or triple your contribution to nonprofits like Triangle Land Conservancy. Check with your human resources department. Fill out any matching gift forms and send to TLC along with your donation.

Making a Gift of Stock to TLC

Gifts of securities provide another option for you to support TLC’s local conservation mission. The simplest way to donate stock to TLC is through your broker. Your broker can transfer your stock to TLC’s account No. 84065555 at Wells Fargo Advisors, DTC #0141. TLC’s federal tax ID number is 58-1514406.
