Gifts of Real Estate
Timothy Prosser, JD
November 4, 2020
Real estate – including residential, commercial, and farm property – can be an important part of your organization’s gift pipeline. While real estate-funded life income gifts can be complex, these gifts also tend to be larger on average than gifts of cash or marketable securities, and therefore worth the extra time and effort required to discover, qualify and close them. In this case study, we will discuss a charitable remainder unitrust funded with Colorado farmland to benefit a private college in the Midwest. This gift faced numerous obstacles along the way, due to the nature of the property involved and the particular objectives of the parties. Let’s see how a motivated donor, dedicated planned giving officer, and qualified professional advisors worked together to resolve these issues and create a watershed gift for the college.
