Transform Realty into Generous Giving

Giving a gift of real estate, such as a personal home, vacation home, undeveloped property, or a farm, can be a highly effective philanthropic and financial strategy. Each of the following gift arrangements has distinct tax benefits, which Christian Union would be happy to discuss with you:

  • Your property can fund a trust that makes payments back to you or someone you name.
  • You can choose to make an outright gift of real estate, which can be used for funding a ministry fellow or other purposes.
  • If you are planning to sell your real estate, you can transfer ownership of an interest in the property to Christian Union. After the sale, the ministry receives its share of the proceeds.
  • You can make a gift through a retained life estate arrangement, under which you give Christian Union your home, but retain the right to live there for the rest of your life. You also receive a current income tax deduction.
  • The property that you contribute is removed from your taxable estate.
