How It Works

  • You deed your residence, a vacation home, or other investment property to Yale.
  • Yale may use the property for its own purposes, or, more likely, will sell it and use the proceeds for our programs.


  • You receive an income tax deduction for the fair market value of the real estate, no matter what you originally paid for it.
  • You pay no capital gains tax on the transfer.
  • You can direct the proceeds from your gift to a specific Yale program.
