​Leave a Legacy to Conservation


Benefit wildlife and future generations by donating land to the Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC). A gift of land through a present-day donation, or future bequest, can provide a peace-of-mind knowing your contribution will be managed to support wildlife and provide public access for countless hours of pleasurable wildlife related activities.

The PGC's vision is to be recognized as a leader in innovative and proactive stewardship of the state's wild birds and wild mammals, and their habitats. Your generous gift of land can become a valuable part of our agency's vision. The PGC offers several different options for landowners who want to be a partner in conserving wildlife and protecting natural landscapes.

A gift of land to the PGC as a charitable contribution may benefit the landowner financially.  Please consult with your tax/financial adviser or attorney about the tax advantages of donating your land to the PGC.  In many cases, you will be able to receive a deduction on your federal income or estate taxes.

We would be delighted to discuss the options that would best fit for your goals and your land. Please contact The PGC Real Estate Division by phone at 717-787-6818, to start the conversation. Below is an overview of a few of the main conservation options that may be available to you.
