You did it!
Your generosity helped us raise and match over $20,000 from July through September!
By joining as a member or making a donation, you helped us raise $21,745 in three months. $20,000 of this will be matched by the Paul H. Johanson Fund to support the New Agrarian Program, the New Mexico Coalition to Enhance Working Lands, and the educational workshops Quivira provides. You foster resilient working lands by making this coalition possible – thank you!
Your passion for the land and this coalition is of paramount importance, and is what drives us at Quivira. The time you spend with family, friends, and community — nurturing relationships and growing this community of practice — is foundational to our work.
The work that your financial support empowers is also critical to our collective success. When you support the Quivira Coalition, you build soil, restore watershed health, foster the next generation of ranchers and farmers, and cultivate community.

Charitable Retirement Distribution
As of 2020, annual minimum withdrawals from traditional individual retirement accounts (SEP simple IRAs) and some other retirement plans are required of most individuals 72 years old and older. These disbursements may significantly increase your income taxes. As a way to avoid this, use your distribution to make a tax-free gift directly from your IRA to the Quivira Coalition. If you are interested in making a charitable distribution from your retirement account to Quivira, please contact Sam Hinkle (information below).
Appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual funds are also a gift you can make today to support Quivira and reduce your tax burden. By donating these to Quivira directly instead of selling your holdings and donating profit, you avoid taxes associated with the additional income. If you are interested in making a donation of securities, please contact Sam Hinkle (information below).
Planned giving is also referred to as gift planning or legacy giving. In a nutshell, it is a donor’s intention to contribute a major gift to an organization, beyond their lifetime. When you remember the Quivira Coalition in your estate plan, you become a Resiliency Partner, creating a legacy in the radical center by joining other like-minded supporters to help safeguard Quivira’s work into the future.
A legacy gift made through your will or revocable trust, or by naming Quivira as a beneficiary of your retirement plan or life insurance, may be the most impactful donation you’ve ever given! Gifts to charitable organizations are excluded from estate tax.
