Real estate can provide a significant boost to Clemson students and faculty. Principal and vacation homes, farms, timberlands, commercial buildings and unimproved land (land without buildings) are all ways to support Clemson and gain significant tax benefits.
Real estate may be given as a current gift, a planned gift or as a retained asset. As a planned gift, you can designate Clemson as the beneficiary of your real estate through your bequest, making it free of estate tax.
As retained real estate, you can give your home, vacation home or farm to Clemson and you and your spouse or other survivor can continue living there for life. Although you reserve the right to live on the property, you will immediately receive a significant income tax deduction, and it removes the property from your estate.
