Historically, most charities have been unable or unwilling to accommodate gifts of real estate. A large percentage of properties offered as donations are rejected by the charities because of liability concerns, mortgages or liens, or environmental issues. Charities’ staffs simply don’t have the expertise, or the time to safely handle such donations. Their boards of directors discourage such gifts. The times are changing. Charities need the revenue such donations will generate.

Corporations are challenged to liquidate properties in a timely manner while meeting governmental guidelines and regulations. Donating property was difficult as the associated legal, financial and organizational issues discouraged most non-profit organizations from accepting these gifts. New opportunities may provide an exit strategy for corporations who own negative cash flow properties and at the same time create major funding for the charitable world. Why wouldn’t your corporation seize this opportunity?
- Costly Unused or Underused Property Can be Eliminated
- May be Able to Deduct Up to 10% of the Corporate Profits
- Excess Contribution Amounts May be Carried Forward for Up to Five Years
- The Donation May be Timed for the Best Advantage
- Excellent Public Relations for the Local Community
- Whether you are an individual donor, a charity seeking assistance, or a corporation looking for answers, Housing our Heroes is the only call you need to make!
