Real Estate

A gift of real estate may enable you to make a significant gift to Oberlin and save on taxes.  You can donate a residence, a vacation home, or even undeveloped land. 

This is the right gift for you if you:

  • Have real estate that is not subject to a mortgage, and which you have owned for at least one year; and
  • Want to avoid paying capital gains tax on the transfer of the property

This asset can be designated to: Area of Greatest Need, Scholarships, Professorships, Endowment.
