Real Estate 
Gifts of residences and real estate provide tax deductions, avoid capital gains taxes, and in some instances permit continued lifetime residence.

Contributions of tangible personal property including rare books, art, and antiques may provide you with immediate tax advantages. To take advantage of a charitable income tax deduction, your gift must relate directly to William Paterson's activities and mission.
