Real Estate

There are many options for donating your home, second home, commercial building, vacant land, farm or other real estate to Massachusetts General Hospital. We can identify a plan to help you make a generous gift to Mass General while achieving your financial goals.

A gift of real estate could be right for you if:

  • You own real estate for which you no longer want to be responsible.
  • You’re willing to donate your home if you can continue to live in it.
  • You own real estate that you’re willing to donate if you get income in return.
  • You want to save on income taxes.


Common techniques for making a gift of real estate include:

  • Give your real estate now.
  • Give your home now but continue to live in it as long as you wish.
  • Give your real estate now and receive payments for life.
  • Give your real estate through your estate.
  • Give a portion of your real estate and keep the rest.
