Real Estate

A gift of real estate may be a principal residence or vacation home, a farm, a commercial building, a subdivision lot, or unimproved land. The gift may be the entire property or a fractional interest in the property.

Gifts of Securities

Gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual funds held for more than one year can provide special tax advantages. Closely held stock, S corporation stock, limited liability company interests, and partnership interests can sometimes be used to make a charitable gift.
