CREPPF Gift Acceptance Policy  ||  CREPPF Fee Schedule  ||  FAQs

Real estate, antiques and business interests can make great charitable gifts, but they're tough to fit into the donation envelope. Their value still can be delivered with the help of the Community Real Estate and Personal Property Foundation.

By giving real estate or personal property, you:

  • Turn valuable assets into charitable dollars. Business interests, art, antiques, real estate -- residential, commercial or undeveloped -- can all be tapped to support your charitable goals.
  • Support your favorite causes. The proceeds from your gift may be directed to a charitable fund within the Community Foundation from which your or your family can distribute grants to favorite nonprofit organizations. You also may arrange for some or all of the proceeds to be distributed to charities you select.
  • Gain a deduction. Transfers to CREPPF, a 501(c)(3) public charity, are generally deductible for federal and state income, gift, and estate tax purposes.

We are part of the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region, so you and your advisors will work with its friendly and knowledgeable staff. The legal, tax, real estate, and financial professionals on our volunteer board review every gift. Their expertise allows us to streamline the transfer process, minimize risks, and optimize the value upon sale — and that means more for your favorite charities.
