Real Estate and Appreciated Assets
We welcome donations of your real estate and other appreciated assets, such as fine art. We'll help guide you through any liquidation arrangements, including handling all the sales if you prefer. Real estate and appreciated assets may be donated outright, as well as through planned giving. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Planned and Estate Gifts
Planned gifts are particularly attractive to SF State alumni and friends who live in areas where real estate appreciation has increased exponentially over the last few decades. In addition to including SF State in your will, it's possible to establish an annuity or other income-bearing arrangement that actually benefits you and possibly your heirs, and at the same time benefits SF State.

The value of a gift in-kind is tax-deductible and may include a range of tangible personal property, such as furniture and equipment, personal libraries, etc. Call (415) 338-1042 or email us, and we'll help match your potential donation with a particular need at SF State.
