Support PTLT

PTLT Joins Maryland Combined Campaign 

PTLT has submitted an application to join the MCC.  If you, or your spouse, works for the state government, you may elect PTLT in your end of year donations.  Help save open space in YOUR community.

Your financial support of our operations is much appreciated. You can easily donate to PTLT with a credit card or PayPal account. (You do NOT have to register with Paypal to make a credit card donation to PTLT). Or, do it the old-fashioned way — send a check to the address below. As a thank you for gifts of at least $25, we will send you a set of notecards, painted by noted local artist Christina Allen, depicting land preserved by PTLT.

PTLT is a tax-exempt charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations are taxdeductible as allowed by law.

If you are interested in getting more information about Estate Gift Planning, please contact PTLT for more information.

Since its inception in 1996 the Patuxent Tidewater Land Trust (PTLT) has served just one purpose – saving land.

In short, our backyard is slowly disappearing and as each acre is developed our chances of getting it back are almost zero. 

Learn about volunteer activities.  Join our Friends group and find activities and events that PTLT sponsors (Trails Group- Hike, bike, and water trails; Weed Warriors group- remove invasive vines; Film screenings; Friends e-newsletter).
In a time of rapid change and vanishing landscapes, isn’t it wonderful that your local Land Trust (all-volunteer Board) members care about a permanent long term solution?
On behalf of the PTLT staff and Board and friends, thank you for your kind and generous support.

The Patuxent Tidewater Land Trust is a 501(c)3 corporation. All donations are fully deductible as charitable contributions.

If you are 70½ or older, you may be eligible to make an IRS charitable rollover gift to PTLT using funds transferred directly from your IRA. Please contact your accountant or financial advisor for more information on this tax-advantaged opportunity to help save Southern Maryland’s landscape.
