Outright Gift of Real Estate

Transforming Realty Into Gift Reality

If you’d like to make a big gift to National University without touching your bank account, consider a donation of real estate. Your generous gifts will allow us to educate adult learners for years to come.

Did you know that a gift of real estate can also help you? It’s true. When you gift us appreciated property that you’ve held longer than one year, you qualify for a charitable deduction on your federal income tax, eliminating capital gains tax. As an added bonus, you no longer have to deal with that property’s maintenance costs, property taxes or insurance.

If selling the property sounds like a daunting task, you don’t have to deal with selling, at all. By gifting, you can simply deed the property directly to NU — or ask your attorney to add a few sentences in your will or trust agreement.
