Gifts of Personal Property

Donate personal property that will help us to continue and expand our mission while providing significant tax benefits to you.

 


How It Works

  • You transfer a valuable painting, antique, or other personal property to The Hotchkiss School.
  • The Hotchkiss School may hold and display the property or use it in the furtherance of its mission.
  • The Hotchkiss School may sell the property at some point in the future and use the proceeds for its mission.

Benefits

  • You receive an immediate income tax deduction for the appraised value of your gift and pay no capital gains tax, so long as the gift can be used by The Hotchkiss School to carry out its mission.
  • In certain cases, you can use personal property to fund a life-income gift that provides you and/or other loved ones with an income now and benefits The Hotchkiss School in the future.
  • Without using cash, you can make a gift that is immediately beneficial to The Hotchkiss School.
