Real Estate

There are many options for donating your home, second home, commercial building, vacant land, farm, or other real estate to Bennington College. There may be a gift plan available that will help you achieve your charitable and financial goals.

A gift of real estate could be right for you if you have any of these goals:

  • You own real estate for which you no longer want to be responsible.
  • You are willing to donate your home if you can continue to live in it.
  • You own real estate that you are willing to sell to us for a bargain price.
  • You own real estate that you are willing to donate if you get income in return.
  • You want to save income taxes.
  • You want to make a generous gift to Bennington.

How it works
Here are some common techniques for making a gift of real estate to Bennington.

  • Give your real estate now.
