You can give real estate as a current gift or a planned gift (retained life estate, gifts through your will, etc.) As a current gift of real estate held long term, the donation provides you with a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the gift, up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income. You will need to have your gift appraised by an independent appraiser to determine the value of your deduction.
All gifts of real estate must first be evaluated by the University Gift Acceptance Committee. Before accepting a gift of real estate, the University asks that you supply detailed information on the property.
If you would like to confidentially discuss a gift of real estate, please contact Bill Townsend at 601.925.3257.
If you are considering a gift of personal property, please see Gifts of Personal Property.
