The Gift of Real Estate

Help Us Build the Future - Donate Property or Vehicles

Donate a home or land parcel and help Habitat with the first step in the building process! By making a gift of real estate, the donation provides you with tax-benefits while making a personal impact for local families.

Gifts of real estate include undeveloped land, residential and commercial property in Winchester, Frederick County and Clarke County. Habitat looks for land large enough to build at least a single family home. A larger lot would possibly allow us to build multiple housing units, giving us the ability to help more than one family per build.

Real Estate Gifts May Be Accepted in a Variety of Ways

Outright Gift: Donor transfers the property for retention and use by the Habitat for Humanity or for immediate liquidation with proceeds directed according to donor intent.

Bargain Sale: Donor sells the property to Twin Cities Habitat for less than its appraised fair market value and receives a charitable deduction for the difference between the value of the property and the sale price.

Bequest: Donor bequeaths the property to Habitat for Huamnity of Winchester-Frederick-Clarke in his or her will or revocable (living) trust.If a gift of real estate is encumbered by a mortgage or lien, Habitat will request the donor pay off the debt prior to making the donation.


Please consider this information as a starting point.  With all charitable gifts, it is important to consult with your attorney or financial advisor to ensure that you comply with state laws, receive maximum tax benefits, and that your wishes are accurately reflected in necessary legal documents. 

Please contact us with any questions you have about donating your gift. You can reach us at 540.662.7066, or by email at

Thank you for joining us in our work to help families build strength, stability and independence through shelter. Everyone deserves a decent place to live, and everyone can do something today to make that possible for another family.

Cars for Homes

Hammers. Nails. Drills. These are the things most people might list when they think about what is needed to help families build or improve a place to call home. But did you know that the list also includes cars, trucks, boats and motorcycles? 

Car donations are just one more way you can support our work at Blue Ridge Habitat for Humanity. The proceeds from your car donation come directly back to helping build and repair homes for local families in our community. Donating your car may also be tax-deductible, and you can complete the process quickly.
