Farmland Retention

Minnesota has a strong agricultural history. With billions of dollars of land wealth set to be passed on in the coming years, farmland giving represents an incredible opportunity for rural philanthropy. Donating farmland through one of the four Minnesota Initiative Foundation’s Farmland Retention programs – whether an outright donation from the sale of land or as a gift agreement – ensures that land will be in production for years to come and income generated will be used to benefit the landowner’s community, while also giving a tax benefit to landowners.
