You can donate appreciated real estate – such as a home, vacation property, undeveloped land, farmland, ranch or commercial property. This is an effective way to fund a legacy gift for Carleton. Click here to request a brochure for more information.

Gift of Residual Interest.  You can donate property and live in it for the rest of your life as if nothing has changed. Release the value of your principal residence with a donation of the property for a big tax credit from a charitable tax receipt to offset otherwise taxable withdrawals from retirement funds or from the sale of other capital assets. This kind of donation can actually increase your income and the asset value will continue to grow for the University.


  • Get real value out of your biggest tax-exempt asset.
  • Receive a huge charitable income tax credit.
  • Create your lasting legacy with Carleton.
