Give Smart - Donating Real Estate

If you have a personal home, vacation home, farmland, building, rental property, or undeveloped land, a real estate donation could provide a significant gift to charity and a tax-saving opportunity.

If you have a personal home, vacation home, farmland, building, rental property, or undeveloped land, a real estate donation could provide a significant gift to charity and a tax-saving opportunity. THCF can accept all kinds of real estate donations and help you meet your philanthropic goals.

It’s important to understand both the tax benefits available and the additional requirements of a gift of real estate, and THCF can help advise you on the process. When you consider the ongoing expenses in keeping unwanted or non-producing properties—personal property taxes, maintenance costs, income taxes—it may be a better choice to donate it to your Donor Advised Fund and enhance your charitable giving. And because you are donating the real estate rather than selling it, you can eliminate capital gains taxes, increasing the amount available for your charitable giving up to 20 percent and receiving a charitable deduction. 

THCF can help advise you on the best financial and philanthropic strategy for you.
