Gifts of Real Estate

You can take care of yourself and MCV Foundation with a gift of real estate.

What are the benefits?

One of the most flexible charitable giving options available, real estate can be used to make a gift that:

  • you own appreciated property that you no longer wish to maintain or manage.
  • you have a vacation home that your family no longer uses.
  • you would like to use your property to obtain income for life.

The most common ways to make a gift of real estate are to:

  • make an outright gift of your property to MCV Foundation.
  • give your property to charitable remainder unitrust for the benefit of MCV Foundation.
  • convey a remainder interest in your home to MCV Foundation.
  • leave property to MCV Foundation through your estate.

Gifts of real estate can be complex and legal restrictions may limit MCV Foundation's ability to own or sell a parcel of real estate, we will work closely with you to ensure this is a gift that can achieve your personal and philanthropic goals.
