How it works
- You sell your residence or other property to The Nature Conservancy for a price below the appraised market value, resulting in a transaction that is part charitable gift and part sale.
- The Nature Conservancy may use the property, but usually elects to sell it and use the proceeds of the sale for the gift purposes you specified.
- You receive an immediate income tax deduction for the appraised market value of the portion of the property you donated.
- You pay no capital gains tax on the donated portion of the property.
- You use cash from the sale portion to retire a mortgage or purchase other property.
- You have the satisfaction of making a significant gift to The Nature Conservancy during your lifetime.
