Gifts of Real Estate and Property

Donating a home, farm, or forested property can provide you with many financial benefits while supporting Oregon State University’s teaching, research, students, and outreach. Benefits may include:

  • Income tax deduction based on the appraised value of the property
  • Avoidance of capital gains taxes
  • Relief from maintenance and other ownership responsibilities
  • Assistance with property sale
  • Immediate or future support for OSU

The OSU Foundation has worked with donors of real estate since 1947, helping them make an impact on students, faculty and programs with more than 450 generous gifts. These gifts of property may be made outright, as life-income gifts with tax benefits, or with an arrangement where you reserve the right to continue living on the property for your lifetime. Our experts can help you explore the options and create a plan that fits your needs.
