Strategic Use of Your Assets

Although charitable gifts are most commonly made in the form of cash and appreciated securities, many donors have discovered that contributing other types of assets can provide tax advantages as well as meaningful support for Yale.

Real estate, personal property such as works of art, and privately held business interests are a few examples of assets that can be given to the university in a variety of strategic ways.

Gifts of Cash

Maximize your charitable deduction and deliver immediate benefits to Yale. 

Gifts of Appreciated Securities

The IRS allows you one of its most significant tax breaks for gifts of appreciated securities. 

Gifts of Personal Property

Donate books, artwork, or equipment and secure an income tax deduction.

Gifts of Real Estate

Make a substantial gift to Yale through a transfer of residential, commercial, or undeveloped real estate. 

Gifts of Business Interests

Give Yale an interest in a closely-held or family business.

Gifts of Partnership Interests

Support Yale by transferring interest in a real estate or oil-and-gas partnership. Learn what the IRS requires and how we review gift offers.
