Donating appreciated real estate, such as a home, vacation property, undeveloped land, farmland, ranch or commercial property can make a great gift to Methodist Home for Children.
Your real property may be given to Methodist Home for Children by executing or signing a deed transferring ownership. You may deed part or all of your real property to Methodist Home for Children. Your gift will generally be based on the property's fair market value, which must be established by an independent appraisal.
