Reviewer Guidelines

To certify the public benefit of donations, applications are reviewed to:

  1. determine if the donation of property interest provides a public benefit, as defined in the state laws.
  2. establish if the donation instrument maintains the public benefits in perpetuity. Resource agencies apply specific criteria based on the primary conservation purpose.
