Real Estate Donations
Do you have a piece of property that you can’t use? Are you paying taxes on land you don’t want? Donate real estate or a portion of the sales proceeds from the sale of your home to Harbor House. When you donate land you: stop paying taxes and maintenance on a property you don’t use, qualify for an IRS tax deduction and avoid all the headaches of selling a property by donating it!
We have established arrangements with Autos for Auction, Inc. and Donate For Charity to process vehicle donations for us.
They will arrange a free vehicle pickup, handle all the DMV issues, sell the vehicle at auction, and distribute the net proceeds to Harbor House Ministries.
By donating, help support Harbor House Ministries, and receive a receipt entitling you to declare the fair market value of your vehicle as a tax deduction.
When you’re ready to donate, or if you want to learn more, contact: Donate For Charity at (866) 392-4483
