Gifts of Real Estate...

Gifts of real estate, whether during or after your lifetime, have become a popular way to support national parks. NPCA accepts gifts of real estate, pending environmental and other assessments.

How it Works

Option 1:

Give Outright

Transfer your real estate directly and irrevocably to NPCA. We will sell your property and use the proceeds to support national parks.

Option 2:

Bargain Sale

A bargain sale can provide you with both a lump sum cash offer and a charitable deduction. Bargain sales require you to sell your property to NPCA for less than what it is worth (typically no more than 50 percent of its fair market value).

Option 3:

Retained Life Estate

You can donate your property to NPCA and receive a tax deduction while still maintaining your legal right to live in and enjoy your home for the rest of your life.

There are many different options for donating real estate. If you have questions, please call or email Natalie Gupta, Planned Giving Officer, at (917) 685-0506 or by email at We have dedicated staff available to answer your questions and we will respect your privacy.

Your gift is fully deductible for federal estate tax purposes, and there is no limit on the deduction your estate can claim. Many gifts are also exempt from state inheritance taxes.
