Planned Giving

Planned giving is a method of supporting not-for-profit entities that enables a donor to leave money or other assets to a not-for-profit organization at his/her death; or a way for a donor to structure financial affairs so that the donor receives benefit during his/her life and then donates the remaining funds to the not-for-profit. Interested donors should consult their attorney, accountant and/or financial professional to determine the best way to accomplish their philanthropic goals.


Bequests are the most common way to make lasting gifts. Interested donors may simply list INAgLaw as a beneficiary in their will or a trust. Sample will language is available upon request.

Retirement Plans

IRA, 401(k), or other qualified retirement plan assets may be used to leave a legacy simply by naming INAgLaw as a beneficiary or percentage beneficiary. Generally, these plans can have negative tax consequences if they are passed on to anyone other than a spouse.

Life Insurance

Life insurance can be used as a planned gift by naming INAgLaw as a beneficiary or percentage beneficiary.


Donors can fill out the pledge form electronically.

Retained Life Estate

Donors can realize substantial tax benefits by gifting their farm (or residence) to INAgLaw while retaining the right to use the property for as long as they live. At the end of the donor's life, the property could be sold and the proceeds are used to fund the gift. This is called a retained life estate.

Contributions are tax deductible under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.


“We have been long-time supporters of the Indiana Agricultural Law Foundation. We really appreciate the types of cases they get involved with and how the foundation can be a voice for Indiana agriculture in our courthouses. Also, the educational programs the foundation puts on have been valuable to our farm and family. If you are not already, I would encourage other farmers to support the foundation too.”

Tim and Monica Stafford, Tipton County

“The Indiana Agricultural Law Foundation (IALF) is a good investment for Indiana Pork’s policy and advocacy dollars. The legal issues that affect the pork industry do not always have a pork farmer involved in the case, but the outcome of those cases can affect our members just the same. The IALF is not affiliated with any one segment of ag, so cases in which it might not make sense for Indiana Pork to be involved might still be supported by the Foundation. We appreciate the Foundation’s work because the IALF is the means by which Indiana Pork can help support the cases that affect pork farmers even when pork farmers are not directly involved.”

Josh Tenary, Executive Director, Indiana Pork

“Indiana Farmers operate in a complex legal environment. It is a reality that Federal, state, and local laws, statutes and regulations impact our operations. The foundation gets involved in precedent setting legal cases that are important to Indiana agriculture. Also, the educational programs they put on help educate farmers and other agricultural stakeholders. Allen County Farm Bureau has been a long-time supporter of the Indiana Agricultural Law Foundation and I would encourage other counties and individuals to do the same. I have recently been asked to serve on the foundation’s Advisory Committee and have witnessed the good work the foundation performs for our members.”

Tim Miller, Allen County Farm Bureau President

“We appreciate the Indiana Agricultural Law Foundation's support over the years in our case in the pursuit of protecting the taking of land by the IDNR. This was a long-term case that took a lot of information collection and persistence from all parties involved to push back against the IDNR to protect farmers across the state. Without the support of donations to the INAgLaw we would have had a difficult time pushing back IDNR and correcting the damages they forced upon us.”
