Is This Gift Right for You?

Use this checklist to see if making a charitable gift using real estate is a good option for you.

CheckmarkTax Tip
Donating real estate helps lower your taxes by reducing the size of your future estate.

  • You want to make a significant gift that benefits our organization today.
  • The expenses and obligations of owning your property outweigh the income you receive from it.
  • You don't have family members or loved ones who wish to take on the responsibilities or costs of owning your property after you're gone.
  • You want immediate income tax relief as well as elimination of capital gains tax on the property's appreciation.
