United In Service: Making A Difference by Being The Difference
Remembering Honoring Helping Veterans In Need

Make A Difference Good Deed

Real Estate Donation

Year-round, the United Relief Foundation considers all types of residential, multi-use, and commercial real estate in all sorts of conditions within the city limits of Chicago or its neighboring suburbs.

Good Deed Reward

Regardless of your real estate is unwanted or hard to sell, it does not lessen the good your donation can do in supporting our efforts to help Veterans in need.


By donating to a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization, you should be able to receive a tax deduction for the appraised value¹.

Save Money

Keep from wasting more money on upkeep, utilities, insurance, and property taxes for an unwanted or hard to sell real estate.

Easy and Simple Process

Our real estate professionals will attend to the details and guide you through the process¹ and are able to complete within 14 days.

The United Relief Foundation and its representatives do NOT provide legal, financial, or tax advice. Real estate donors are advised to consult with legal and tax professionals regarding donating.

Real estate professionals, who donate their time and expertise to the United Relief Foundation, review real estate donations to ensure that the Foundation's service to those who served our country can benefit from the donation.


The type, condition, and location of the real estate will determine if the best benefit is in using or selling the property.

Should all your ownership papers be in order and the title is clear of any issues, it is possible to complete the donation process in as little as two weeks.

The fair market value of your property is determined by the appraisal of a qualified third-party appraiser.

A fair market value appraisal of your property will be necessary for your tax purposes. However, an appraisal is not necessary for the donation processes.

The United Relief Foundation is not allowed by law to recommend a third-party appraiser.

The United Relief Foundation, with the assistance of our donor legal and real estate professionals, takes care of all the paperwork and the typical closing expenses at NO cost to you.

You will receive a donation agreement to start the donation transfer process and then the closing documents for your signature to complete the donation.

Yes, we do consider and accept real estate even if it's in need of repairs.
