Donors may give a gift of real estate to Boston College and reap wide-ranging financial benefits while touching the lives of tomorrow’s students.
Those interested should consider these giving options:
- An outright gift that provides a charitable income tax deduction for the full market value and eliminates capital gains tax on any appreciation
- A retained life estate that offers a sizeable income tax deduction while enabling you and your spouse to live in your home for life
- A charitable remainder trust funded with your property that offers a lifetime income stream and a significant charitable income tax deduction—and eliminates capital gains tax on any appreciation
