Here are some questions we will need to answer to determine if your property will be helpful to us:
You will receive an income tax deduction equal to the appraised fair market value of the property. An independent qualified appraisal is required for this purpose and it is up to the donor to acquire such an appraisal. Donating your property may also reduce your estate costs and taxes as well.
In many cases the answer is yes. Real estate can be transferred to a charitable remainder unitrust that will provide the donor with tax reduction benefits as well as setting up an income stream for beneficiaries such as a spouse, children, and/or other loved ones.
We provide this information to illustrate the potential financial benefits of supporting USF. These illustrations should not be viewed as legal, accounting or other professional advice. We encourage our alumni and friends to consult with their own legal and tax advisors before completing a gift.
