Collections, Tangible Property, and Other Assets

Boston College Gasson Hall

How It Works

Collections and tangible personal property
Any physical object of value that includes, but isn’t limited to artwork, antiques, rare books, collections (such as stamps or coins), rugs, pianos, and much more. Many of the pieces in the McMullen Museum’s collection and books in the Burns Library were given to the University by generous donors.

If your property can be used for the mission of the University (also called related use property), such as artwork donated to the McMullen Museum, you could potentially receive a charitable deduction for your gift.

Other assets
There are many additional assets that may be used to fund a gift to Boston College, including but not limited to:

  • Business interests
  • Copyrights or royalties
  • Oil and gas interests
  • Patents
  • Cryptocurrency
