A lifetime of careful investment and sacrifice can create countless memories and benefit many people. But as the saying goes, you can’t take it with you. How about building a legacy and seeing it grow before you head for the last roundup? If you’re a Texas landowner, here are three legacy options.

  1. Sell your land
  2. Bequeath your land to a relative
  3. Donate your land to a community development corporation, like Inspiring You To Greatness CDC

Sell Your Land

Texas has three historical pathways to legacy wealth; land, oil, and cattle. Of course, if you are bored with your land, you can always sell it and spend the proceeds on your favorite charity, church, or next ex-spouse. Selling gives you a quick return but adds nothing to that quiet craving of wanting to leave something behind that’s worthwhile. If you think about it, you already know what your descendants will spend it on. It’s time to ask if there is something more.

Bequeath Your Land

Leaving your land to your loved ones is another option. The only catch is that you must cash in all your chips to make it happen. What if there was a way to see the good your donation can do in the here and now? Does Texas really need another barndominium and forty-foot RV shed? What if you could help create something bigger?

Inspiring You To Greatness Community Development Corporation

Believe it or not, there are still people in this world that want to help. Not only do they want to help, but they also want to inspire. Inspiring You To Greatness is a non-profit 501(c)(3) community development corporation with the mission of providing low-to-moderate income communities with workforce development, technical assistance to small businesses, financial credit literacy education, and neighborhood revitalization through affordable housing in Collin, Dallas, Denton, & Tarrant Counties. It is based in Frisco, Texas but serves all of Texas. Your land donation can be the launchpad for thousands of people living to their full potential and improving the world. That probably beats giving your deadbeat son-in-law another lake house any day.

What will your legacy be? Will you do the same thing as generations before, or step off the path and make a real difference? Your land donation to Inspiring You To Greatness lets you see the difference in people’s lives today. The Managing Members of 555 Equity LLC are also givers. They serve as Board Members of the fabulous non-profit organization, Inspiring You To Greatness Community Development Corporation. ** Inspiring You To Greatness ** (iytgcdc.org)
