Generosity comes in many forms, and it's our pleasure and privilege to help people find ways to get the most out of their giving. When you give to a fund at CommunityGiving, amazing things happen that truly make a difference in the lives of real people.
Donating appreciated real estate, such as a home, vacation property, undeveloped land, farmland, ranch or commercial property can make a great charitable gift to support the causes you care most about by setting up a fund with CommunityGiving or one of our partner foundations.
Real property may be given to CommunityGiving by executing or signing a deed transferring ownership. You may deed part or all of your real property to CommunityGiving or a planned giving vehicle. Your gift will generally be based on the property's fair market value, which must be established by an independent appraisal. Here are some ways real estate may be gifted:
