Gifts of real estate

Owners of farmland, commercial or residential property, or vacant investment land can multiply their giving and reap significant tax benefits by making gifts of real estate.


  • Avoid lump sum capital gains tax.
  • Get an immediate tax deduction.
  • Create dependable income.
  • Preserve farm heritage.

Gifts of real estate can provide a distinctive giving opportunity – an opportunity that might meet your long-term financial goals while also benefiting the current and future work of your favorite charities. These types of gifts can be complicated, though, due to tax and other issues. So, we recommend you contact your local Everence charitable services representative for more information. We're ready to help with decisions, all the while respecting your wishes, understanding your values, and being sensitive to your faith and values.
