Gifts of Real Estate

Donate a valuable asset in exchange for powerful tax benefits and possibly an income stream for you and/or your loved ones.


How It Works

  • You deed your home, your vacation home, undeveloped property, or a commercial building to The Oregon State University Foundation.
  • The Oregon State University Foundation may use the property for its own purposes or will sell it and use the proceeds.


  • You receive an income tax deduction for the fair market value of the real estate.
  • You pay no capital gains tax on the transfer.
  • You can direct the proceeds from your gift to a specific program at Oregon State University Foundation.
