Planned Giving

A charitable bequest is one of the most meaningful ways to ensure your legacy lives up to your values. In some cases, it may even help you save on estate taxes. Protecting farmland and creating land access for farmers is our mission and responsibility — but it is your support that ensures our precious lands are cared for, forever.

Workplace Giving & Matching

Washington Farmland Trust participates in many workplace giving programs, including The Boeing Company Employee Giving Program, City of Seattle Combined Charities, King County Employee Giving Program, Microsoft Employee Giving Program, and Washington State Combined Fund Drive.

Does your company have a workplace giving program?
