What To Give
A gift of your appreciated real property (such as your home, vacation property, vacant land, farmland, ranch or commercial property) can make a great gift to Huston-Tillotson University.

Here are some of the benefits you may enjoy:

  • Avoid paying capital gains tax.
  • Receive a charitable income tax deduction.
  • Leave a lasting legacy.

How you make a gift of real property

Your real property may be gifted to Huston-Tillotson University by executing or signing a deed transferring ownership. You may deed part or all of your real property to Huston-Tillotson University. Your gift will generally be based on the property's fair market value, which must be established by an independent appraisal.

Can you make a gift of mortgaged property?

Please contact us if the property you wish to give has existing debt or a mortgage. Check with us on the capital gains tax implications of your gift. You also may be interested in life income options.
