How to make a gift of real estate

Your gift will generally be based on the property's fair market value, which must be established by an independent appraisal.

Things to Consider

Mortgaged Property - Please contact us if the property you wish to give has existing debt or a mortgage. Indebtedness can affect your charitable tax deduction.

Difficult Property Gifts - Certain properties pose challenges. We have adopted policies to limit the acceptance of certain kinds of real estate. Please check with us before making a gift of real estate so we can explain our gift acceptance policies.

Capital Gains Tax - Check with us on the capital gains tax implications of your gift. You may also be interested in life income options.
