Land & Real Estate

“For you have been a stronghold to the poor, a stronghold to the needy in his distress, a shelter from the storm and a shade from the heat; for the breath of the ruthless is like a storm against a wall,” Isaiah 25:4

Giving options for land and commercial real estate

Similar to the donation of stock/securities, other forms of appreciated assets such as land or real estate can be donated for the benefit of your parish or Catholic Community.

  • Vacant Development Land
  • Commercial Rental Property
  • Company Building or Manufacturing Facility

Also similar to the donation of stock/securities, the outright sale of these assets can open one up to the capital gains tax. As such, please contact a financial advisor BEFORE any possible sale to determine what the best option for donating these pieces might be for one’s financial situation. The diocese is committed to supporting parishioners’ financial endeavors to benefit a parish or preferred ministry. We ask that you alert us to any plan benefiting our Catholic Community so to ensure your wishes are carried out.

  • Outright gift to diocese/parish
  • Charitable remainder trust
  • Charitable gift annuity
  • Gift and sale plan


Please note: At this time, we do not accept the donation of vehicles.
