How you make a gift of real property

Your real property may be gifted to Driscoll Children’s Hospital by executing or signing a deed transferring ownership. You may deed part or all of your real property to Driscoll Children’s Hospital. Your gift will generally be based on the property’s fair market value, which must be established by an independent appraisal.

Can you make a gift of mortgaged property?

Please contact us if the property you wish to give has existing debt or a mortgage. Check with us on the capital gains tax implications of your gift. You also may be interested in life income options.

If you are like most people, you probably will not use all of your retirement assets during your lifetime. Make a gift and help further our mission.

Leave your retirement assets to us

Did you know that 60%-65% of your retirement assets may be taxed if you leave them to your heirs at your death? Another option is to leave your heirs assets that receive a step up in basis (such as real estate and stock) and give the retirement assets to Driscoll Children’s Hospital. As a charity, we are not taxed upon receiving an IRA or other retirement plan assets.

How to transfer your retirement assets

Your retirement assets may be transferred to Driscoll Children’s Hospital by completing a beneficiary designation form provided by your plan custodian. If you designate Driscoll Children’s Hospital as beneficiary, we will receive the full value of your gift because your IRA assets will not be taxed at your death. Your estate will also benefit from an estate tax charitable deduction for the gift.
