Gifts of Real Estate

Gift of Real Estate Diagram

How It Works

  • You deed your home, your vacation home, undeveloped property or a commercial building to UNC Asheville Foundation.
  • UNC Asheville Foundation may use the property for its own purposes or may sell it and use the proceeds.

Please let us know if you have already included University of North Carolina Asheville in your estate plan or if you are considering doing so. We would love to hear from you.


  • You receive an income tax deduction for the fair market value of the real estate at the time of the transfer.
  • You pay no capital gains tax on the transfer.
  • You can direct the proceeds from your gift to a specific program at UNC Asheville.
