How to make a gift of real estate

All or a portion of your real property may be given by executing a deed transferring ownership to the University of Georgia Foundation. Please click here to review the Foundation's policies on acceptance of gifts of real estate. If you do not feel comfortable deeding your property outright, you may wish to consider a "Life Estate Reserved" which allows you to retain ownership and control of the property during your life with the property to transfer to the University of Georgia Foundation at your passing.

Contact us

If you are considering a gift of property, whether outright or a retained life estate, please contact us in advance so that we can coordinate with you and your professional advisors to ensure that the gift complies with Foundation policy and that the Foundation is in a position to accept the real estate.
