Donating your mineral rights to charity can be a beautiful legacy and is one way to make a lasting impact on a cause close to your heart. When you donate producing minerals (those with an active oil or gas well), the organization will benefit for years (or decades). Many of the larger charities and even some universities have teams of mineral managers whose sole job is to accept donations and manage the mineral rights. However, charities may have specific requirements regarding the value, status of the minerals, type of mineral right, clarity of the title.Inquire about donating
Those who have large mineral rights find it difficult to imagine minerals being a burden, but smaller mineral owners have a very different experience. Small mineral rights can be more of a management and tax headache than they are worth. They can also interfere with long-term care and estate planning. What a lot of people don't realize is that if you die in a state other than where the minerals are located, your heirs may have to file ancillary probate in every state and county where you own mineral rights - often at a greater expense than the value of the mineral rights.Inquire about donating

I am putting my affairs on order. The mineral rights have been passed from generation to generation and are nearly worthless now. I can't even find someone willing to buy them, so I donated them, which feels better than selling them for some meager amount. J. Laroque
My kids weren't interested in inheriting my small mineral rights. I don't blame them - splitting the already small minerals even more just doesn't make sense. E. Bankston
I just wanted to get rid of these minerals. I hate having to stay on top of the taxes. I'm so tired of managing 50 wells that each make less than $2 per month! Good riddance! M. McDonald
My wells are plugged. They aren't ever going to produce again, so why pay an attorney to transfer these mineral rights to my children? It's done for and the world is changing.R. Oswald
