Gifts of Real Estate
Gifts of real estate, including personal residences, second homes, income property, and vacant land, offer a wide variety of tax and other benefits. Whereas most people give their entire interest away, it is also possible to give only a portion of the property (an undivided percentage interest) while retaining the rest for other purposes. The University Advancement office will be happy to work with you on the specifics of the gift.
Gifts of Personal Property
Gifts of personal property, including rare books, works of art, valuable collectibles, and tangible items of demonstrable value may in some cases enable you to make a significant gift to support Boise State with outstanding tax benefits to you. Likewise, gifts of intangible personal property, such as copyrights, patents, and mineral rights, can generate income for the program of your choice on a continuing basis. The University Advancement office will be happy to work with you on the specifics of the gift.
An easy way to double or even triple your donation to Boise State is to find out if your company has a matching-gift program. Such programs typically match all or a percentage of employee contributions to charitable organizations, making the employer a partner in employees’ personal philanthropy. Simply obtain a matching-gift form from your employer’s personnel office, fill it out, and provide it to Boise State with your contribution.
