CCALT is now able to receive real estate gifts of all types including: homes, warehouses, land, shopping centers, etc. to support our mission. The land trust is collaborating with Realty Gift Fund (RGF), a specialized 501(c)3 that exclusively accepts gifts of real estate on behalf of nonprofits.

RGF is comprised of real estate and philanthropic professionals determined to help donors and the nonprofit community transact gifts of appreciated assets, and the process to donate gifts of real estate to CCALT through RGF is straightforward for donors and CCALT.

After an introductory and confidential discussion, CCALT can connect donors to RGF for a “no strings attached” evaluation to determine if a potential property gift serves the donor’s goals and qualifies for the program.  If both prove true, a donation agreement will be completed and RGF will take on the entire closing process and provide the necessary documentation for a donor to claim a tax deduction.  At that point, the donor is done and RGF (as the new owner) positions the property for sale.  Net proceeds from the sale are then disbursed to CCALT to support ranchland conservation.

Realty Gift Fund will evaluate real estate of all types (except timeshares) in all states and is highly knowledgeable in the various forms a charitable gift can take, including outright gifts, bargain sales (that include a partial cash payment to the donor), charitable remainder trusts, etc.
