When you support NMLC you are helping to ensure, protect and preserve New Mexico’s land heritage for the benefit of your children and grandchildren, and their children and grandchildren.
Your support can take the form of donations of money, land or in-kind gifts, future support through planned gifts and estate planning and bequests.
Your support and donations will be used to:
Ensure the continuation of local farm/ranch production
Each year over 50,000 acres of rural land are lost due to growth and development, of which ten percent are prime agricultural lands. Along with this, precious water rights, which should be kept on the land, are being transferred and converted to municipal use.
Protect wildlife and their habitats and migratory patterns
Wildlife species are forced to relocate—sometimes suddenly—or find other sources of food and shelter when habitats are fragmented or disappear altogether. Competition for dwindling resources can decimate and endanger entire species.
Preserve New Mexico's scenic open space
New Mexico, known as the Land of Enchantment because of its breathtaking beauty and scenic vistas, is one of the fastest growing states in the nation, with the population expected to increase 35% over the next 25 years.
When you donate to NMLC, you are making a powerful gift that lasts a lifetime—preserving New Mexico’s vital natural resources, the places you love, the quality of life you enjoy. In fact, it lasts longer than a lifetime; your gift will continue to benefit future generations.
