The University of Florida Foundation welcomes and encourages gifts of real estate. Gifts of real estate can significantly enhance university productivity and performance and provide substantial tax benefits for donors. Although the university has made great use of unique properties, most real estate gifts are sold and the proceeds are invested in areas of campus designated by the donor.
Although most gifts are given outright, many also fund charitable remainder trusts (CRT) that pay income to the donor or other beneficiaries designated by the donor.
UFF has experienced real estate and other professional staff to assist donors and their advisers who are considering gifts of real estate. Our procedures (both trust & non trust) for accepting real estate gifts are simple, and our comprehensive real estate policy provides assurance that gifts will be handled professionally to achieve the charitable goals envisioned by donors.
