Each gift of land to Scenic Pittsburgh is unique, as is the way it’s given – and the giver. We deeply appreciate gifts of land, as it gives us the opportunity to preserve the precious scenery of southwestern PA directly.
Donations of appreciated homes and other real property are entitled to an income tax deduction equal to the full value of the property and no tax on the capital gain. If debt-free property is donated, the gift is deductible at the property’s appraised value. It may even be possible to make your gift of property now, but still maintain the right to use the property.
By making this gift now, rather than in your will, you can realize an immediate tax deduction.
If you are interested in giving a gift of land, please contact our assistant director David Demko or call 412-478-1621.
