Philanthropy Facts

In 2015…

  • All Charitable Giving equals ~ $373 billion
  • Real Estate comprises ~ 45% of wealth in America
  • But…Real Estate comprises less than 3.0% of Charitable Giving

  • • too complicated
  • • too little expertise
  • • too many bad experiences
  • • too often encumbered with debt (often prohibited by IRS)

As a result, few non-profits have proactive programs or a staff trained to seek high quality real estate gifts…the largest asset category in America
