Many would also love to make a significant gift to help save children's lives but don't have the means to make such a gift today. If this sounds like you, you may want to consider a charitable giving arrangement called a retained life estate. With a retained life estate, you deed a personal residence or farm to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF now. You retain the right to occupy the home for life and continue to pay real estate taxes, maintenance fees, and insurance on the property. In addition, you can later decide to rent your home or make improvements to it. After your lifetime — and the lifetime of your spouse or another person you choose to retain rights to live in the home — we take possession of the property. 6] Make a Bargain Sale A bargain sale occurs when you sell real estate that you've owned for more than one year and has a minimum value of $100,000 to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF at a price below its appraised fair-market value. After we purchase your property: ● You receive a cash payment from the U.S. Fund for UNICEF for the sale price. ● You qualify for a charitable deduction for the difference between the sale price and the higher fair-market value. ● The U.S. Fund for UNICEF receives the property at a bargain price. You benefit financially, and so do we. Why Donate Real Estate? Depending on the method you choose, a gift of real estate to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF may allow you to: ● Receive an income tax charitable deduction. ● Reduce or eliminate capital gains tax. ● Pay no gift tax on the transfer. ● Reduce your estate administration expenses. ● Relieve the responsibilities and costs of upkeep. © UNICEF/UN069719/Mawa
