As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Triangle Greenways Council accepts donations at any level of generosity. All donations go toward education, promotion, and service projects for conservation and expansion of greenway corridors for public benefit. All funds are managed in strict adherence to nonprofit fiscal and ethical standards by the all-volunteer organization.
The organization is uniquely devoted to securing properties along riparian corridors that contribute to the expansion of future greenways in the Triangle region. The Board of Director’s has facilitated the conservation of 750-plus acres through the activities of its Land Trust Committee. Triangle Greenways is currently focused on the Walnut Creek Greenway corridor in southeast Raleigh, Crabtree Creek greenway corridor in north Raleigh, Middle Creek greenway corridor in southern Wake County, Neuse River Mountains to Sea Trail corridor in Johnston County, and upper Neuse River watershed greenway corridors in Wake and Durham Counties.
The organization has a history of educational and promotional activity. Conferences and workshops have been held with the intent to build support for greenway networks, as well as increase public understanding and professional expertise. Likewise, reports have envisioned new greenway corridor opportunities and promoted their initiation.
With significant experience in modern conservation techniques and knowledge of native biological ecosystems, the organization takes a holistic approach to conservation. Board members come from diverse disciplines including landscape architecture, engineering, planning, legal, and resource management, as well as related government programs. Additionally, through its partnership with its attorneys, Triangle Greenways has access to pro bono legal services including real estate transactions.
Donations to 501(c)(3) nonprofits create tax advantages for most individuals and corporations. However, you should consult with a tax professional representing your interest in regard to potential tax benefits.
Federal estate tax laws are in a perpetual state of flux, and individuals of moderate wealth should consider tax-advantaged conservation to benefit their loved ones and the broader community. Incorporating a ‘green’ hue into your estate planning will be remembered fondly and appreciated by generations to come.
