Real Estate Donation: Who it's for

This option may be suitable for

1. Property owners facing significant capital gains tax liability due to appreciated property values.


2. Individuals seeking to simplify estate planning and reduce estate tax liability

How It Works

The process involves:


1. Contacting us to express your interest in donating real estate.


2. Obtaining an appraisal of the property to determine its fair market value, aiding in calculating your charitable deduction for tax purposes.


3. Collaborating with us and your attorney to transfer property ownership, which may include executing a deed, transferring title, and fulfilling legal or regulatory requirements.


4. Claiming your charitable deduction on your tax return for the year of the donation.
