A gift of real estate provides you with tax benefits while helping local families and building strong communities. Gifts of real estate can be undeveloped land, residential, or commercial property. Habitat for Humanity of Dutchess County generally looks for land large enough to build at least a single-family home; however, a larger lot could allow us to build multiple housing units. This gives us the ability to help more than one family per build.
Donating property is easy! Habitat handles required paperwork. As always, donating real estate is tax deductible.
Your donation will help families in need of a decent place to build long-term financial security. With an affordable, stable home, families have more to spend on food, medicine, child care, education, and other essentials. Your support can help us do more in all the many ways that Habitat builds.
Thanks to you, Habitat Dutchess is transforming lives in our community.
