Gifts of Real Estate

A gift of appreciated real property (such as your home, vacation property, vacant land, farmland, ranch or commercial property) can make a great contribution to Driscoll Children's Hospital.

Make a Gift of Real Property

Your real property may be gifted to Driscoll Children’s Hospital by executing or signing a deed transferring ownership. You may deed part or all of your real property to Driscoll Children’s Hospital. Your gift will generally be based on the property's fair market value, which must be established by an independent appraisal.


Here are some of the benefits you may enjoy:

  • Avoid paying capital gains tax
  • Receive a charitable income tax deduction
  • Leave a lasting legacy


Please contact us if the property you wish to give has existing debt or a mortgage. Check with us on the capital gains tax implications of your gift. You also may be interested in life income options.


If you would like more information on planned giving, please contact Sean Pieri, Vice President of Development, at (361) 694-6405 or
