Real Estate

How It Works

Donating real estate to a charity, like the CRCNA, can have a profound impact on both the donor and the church. Beyond the immediate benefit of supporting our mission, it offers financial advantages and relieves the donor of property-related responsibilities.

For example Samuel was a successful professional with a rental property. As the property appreciated over the years, managing it became burdensome amidst family life and work related travel. Samuel seized the opportunity to make a lasting impact by gifting the property to the CRC.  He not only avoided capital gains tax on the property's appreciation but also qualified a tax charitable tax deduction. 

You too can leverage your real estate assets to create a positive and lasting impact on the world for the great commission!  


Transforming Realty to Gift Reality

If you're looking to make a meaningful gift to CRCNA without impacting your bank account, consider donating real estate, such as a personal residence, vacation home, farm, commercial property, or undeveloped land. Your generous contribution not only fuels our mission but also provides you with several advantages.

When you gift CRCNA appreciated property that you've held for more than one year, you become eligible for a federal income tax charitable deduction. Additionally, this donation may help minimize or even eliminate capital gains tax. Plus, you'll no longer be responsible for the property's maintenance costs, property taxes, or insurance.

Here's another benefit: You won't have to deal with the hassle of selling the real estate. You can directly deed the property to CRCNA or consult your attorney to incorporate a few sentences in your will or trust agreement. This simple act can create a lasting impact, ensuring our work continues for years to come.
