REAL ESTATE

Enjoy Tax Benefits, Generate Income and
Improve the Health of Our Community

Did you know that you can use real estate to further the health priorities you care about most?

A gift of real estate is an innovative way to make a big impact in the health of our community and the world. Your generosity can provide scholarship support, endow a faculty position, assist with the construction of new facilities or fund a critical program or research — whatever inspires you most.

Giving real estate can benefit you, too, by providing you with tax deductions and other financial advantages, like paying an income to you for life. You’ll be simplifying your financial portfolio — and making a gift that will change lives, right here in our community.

Overview

Do you own paid-off, appreciated residential or commercial real property that you no longer wish to maintain or manage? Making a gift of real estate could be the right option for you.

And depending on how you decide to make that gift, you may avoid immediate capital gains taxes on the transfer, generate income for yourself, receive a charitable income tax deduction and remove the asset from your taxable estate.
