Since 1977,nearly 17,000 donors have made at least one giftto POST, and the numbers keep growing.Like our founders, every donor to POST isan entrepreneur for the environment. That’sbecause every gift to POST is an investment in thefuture of the land. In the pages that follow, wecelebrate the storybook hillsides, mist-shroudedridgetops and sweeping coastal plains that youhave helped POST protect in our 30-year history.These images make clear that what we are savingisn’t just real estate, but a rich tapestry of landscapes that have the power to soothe, awe andinspire.

Acquired by POST in 1997.We need the tonic of wildness, to wade sometimes in marshes where thebittern and the meadow-hen lurk, and hear the booming of the snipe;to smell the whispering sedge where only the wilder and more solitaryfowl builds her nest, and the mink crawls with its belly close to theground. We can never have enough of nature. We must be refreshed bythe sight of inexhaustible vigor, vast and titanic features, the sea-coastwith its wrecks, the wilderness with its living and its decaying trees, thethunder cloud, and the rain which lasts weeks and produces freshets.We need to witness our own limits transgressed, and some life pasturingfreely where we never wander.Henry David ThoreauSPRING 2007 9

Donation of Conservation EasementProtects Coastside RedwoodsPOST shields the redwood forest from all developmentand timber harvest. 2007 Paolo VesciaIn December 2006, POST received a donation of aconservation easement over 16 acres of beautifulredwood forest adjacent to POST’s Tunitas Creekproperty along the San Mateo Coast. The easementwas a generous gift from Carl Hoffman, owner of HalfMoon Bay Feed and Fuel, and Roxy Stone, director ofsales and marketing for the Grand Hyatt hotel in SanFrancisco and a board member of the San MateoCounty Resource Conservation District.The protected acreage is part of a larger 77-acreproperty owned by Hoffman and Stone along LobitosCreek Road. Part of the original Rancho Cañada Verdey Arroyo de la Purisima land grant, the property islocated halfway between Half Moon Bay andPescadero.Hoffman and Stone donated the easement inorder to give permanent protection to a toweringgrove of redwoods covering a hillside on their propertyleading into Tunitas Creek. Their agreement withCarl HoffmanNew Law Expands Benefits for Easement Donors, Allows Tax-Free Gifts from IRAsDonors considering gifts to POST have goodnews thanks to temporary provisions of a federal taxlaw passed last summer.Under H.R. 4, “The Pension Protection Act of2006,” some individuals may, for a limited time, maketax-free gifts to organizations such as POST fromtraditional and Roth Individual Retirement Accounts(IRAs). The new law also encourages private landconservation by significantly increasing tax incentivesfor donations of voluntary land protection agreementsknown as conservation easements.For gifts made in 2007, these incentives enablequalifying farmers and ranchers to deduct up to100 percent of their income. They also increase thededuction that landowners can take for donatingconservation easements from an amount equal to30 percent of their yearly income to 50 percent.12 LANDSCAPESIn addition, easement donors may now take deductionsover a period of 16 years instead of six years. The lawcurrently applies only to easements donated or sold forless than market value and not to donations or bargainsales of an entire property.The new law also allows individuals age 701/2and older to make charitable donations up to 100,000in 2007 from an IRA without having to count theirdonations as taxable income. These gifts can alsofulfill annual IRA distribution requirements. If youqualify, your gift from an IRA can now be counted asa tax-free rollover, making it advantageous both foryou and for POST.For more information about this legislation andmaking a gift to POST, please contact POST’sDirector of Planned Giving, Adelaide Roberts, at(650) 854-7696.
