Gifts of Real Estate
You can make a gift of commercial or residential real estate to the Mercy Endeavors Senior Center and receive substantial benefits. For an outright gift of real estate, you will receive a charitable income tax deduction based on the fair market value (appraised value) of the property.
For many donors, a gift made through a will or trust is the most realistic way to make a major gift. Property, including cash, securities, jewelry, works of art, and real estate may be given through a will or trust.
Life Income Gifts
Donors may make a gift to the Mercy Endeavors Senior Center and receive direct financial benefits including an income for life for the donor and/or the donor’s spouse, and a charitable income tax deduction.
Charitable Remainder Trusts
A charitable remainder trust is a personalized life income gift that provides a donor with a lifetime annuity, a charitable income tax deduction, and a federal gift tax deduction.
Gifts of Appreciated Property
If you own stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or other assets that have increased in value since the time of purchase, you may find it advantageous to give them to the Mercy Endeavors Senior Center.
