Forest property is a meaningful gift that will benefit the University of Maine for generations through the Foundation’s Green Endowment Program. Quality forestland can supply a long-term source of income for the University while serving as an outdoor classroom for teaching the principles of conservation, forest management and good stewardship. The goal of the College of Natural Sciences, Forestry and Agriculture is to manage donated forestland wisely for generations of students to come. These lands will be managed not only for long-term yield of marketable products, but for wildlife protection, recreational potential and other forest resource values as well. Making a tax-deductible contribution with a current gift of forestland also eliminates capital gains tax on appreciated property.

The University of Maine Foundation has professional giving officers ready to work with you and your advisors. We may be reached Monday-Friday between the hours of 8 am and 5 pm by calling 1.800.982.8503 or via email at umainefoundation@maine.edu.
