WHAT YOU CAN DO

“Together we can preserve Kansas’ ranching heritage for future generations.”

Unlike many other states, Kansas does not have a conservation fund for land preservation.  Your support makes it possible for RTK to preserve and protect Kansas’ working landscapes, water quality and wildlife habitat.

CARES Act

The CARES Act relief initiative may help you when you donate to RTK. In 2020, it allows taxpayers to deduct up to $300 of their cash donations to qualifying organizations without itemizing deductions. The CARES Act raised the bar for the deductible amount of donations for those itemizing deductions, too – it’s now up from 60% to 100% of AGI. Learn more here. Be sure to check with a tax professional to see if your contribution qualifies for these tax deductions. At RTK, we know there are many dedicated organizations deserving your contribution. Thank you, for considering RTK a worthy recipient and joining our herd.

TIME MATTERS

  • Kansas lost 3 agricultural acres an hour over two decades to urbanization and commercial development.
  • Conservation Easements create more affordable options for future or emerging agriculturalist.
  • The average age of a rancher is 58 with only ¼ of ranchers under the age of 35.
  • Open spaces of the Kansas grasslands provide unique habitats for migrating pollinators, shorebirds and the nesting birds of the Midwest.
