Real Estate

When you donate real property, you generally may claim a charitable contribution for the fair market value of the property donated (except for property used in a trade or business).  You can give real property outright to Michigan Tech or use it to establish a gift instrument that pays you income during your lifetime.
Your gift can consist of full or partial interest in almost any kind of property, including:

  • Residence
  • Vacation home
  • Vacant land
  • Commercial property
  • Condominium

Present Personal Property

Gifts of personal property may also qualify for the charitable contribution tax deduction.  You can give equipment, artwork, rare books or other property that the University can use in its mission.  We’re happy to consult with you about the suitability of your gift.
