Gifts of Real Estate

Gifts of Real EstateDid you know that your personal home, vacation home, underdeveloped property, farm or commercial building could be a gift to Vanderbilt?  Gifts of real property can be a tax-effective way to make an impactful contribution to the programs, schools, or projects that mean the most to you.   When you give Vanderbilt appreciate property you have held for longer than one year, you get a federal income tax charitable deduction.   Avoiding capital gains taxes, as well as no longer dealing with the property’s maintenance costs, property taxes or insurance are all benefits that can come with gifts of real estate.

Contact the Office of Planned Giving to discuss the property you are considering and to discuss next steps by calling (615) 343-3113 or emailing plannedgiving@vanderbilt.edu.
