Growing good food for local people* and teaching school kids how to grow a variety of fruits and vegetables is another, hands-on way to connect folks to the land.

*In 2018, 825 pounds of food was grown and donated locally.

Plan Your Giving & Leave a Legacy


Legacy Gifts- a bequest, a gift from your IRA, a gift of life insurance or another asset- are critical to the long-term success of KELT.

For many KELT supporters, planned or estate gifts create a significant and meaningful way to ensure that their passion for the estuary endures. You can make a legacy gift by establishing a provision in your estate plan that will direct a gift of money or property to KELT at some point in the future.

There are a variety of ways to make a legacy gift: 

A bequest in a will or living trust
A beneficiary designation for a retirement, bank account, annuity or life insurance policy. 

These can be in the form of:  

Cash, stock, mutual funds, savings bonds, retirement accounts, real estate, or business interests.
