All services provided to potential donors are confidential and without charge. Here’s how to get started:
- Contact the CALS Advancement Office at NC State or any of the 101 county-based NC Cooperative Extension offices throughout the state.
- If the property is of interest to the college, it will be assessed (at no cost) by a team of professionals (scientists, field faculty, tax benefit specialists, real estate officers and foundation officers from NC State).
- We will schedule a site visit and meeting with the owner/representative(s).
- If the property’s resources and material value are consistent with that of the college, the transaction will begin with a negotiation of terms.
The CALS Advancement team will be available to the landowner/representatives to determine eligibility for any financial and tax benefits.
If a property is not suited for Landscapes of Opportunity, we may be able to help a landowner find a more appropriate organization to accept the land deal/gift of a property or easement.
