Most Asked Questions

How will my donation be used? United Relief Foundation will sell your property in the most efficient way possible as not to place a financial burden on the Foundation paying insurance, utilities, upkeep and other ownership costs with the proceeds from the sale used to support United Relief Foundation’s efforts.

What are the advantages? One of the advantages to you (the donor) is that the size of the tax deduction is determined by the current market value of the property, as opposed to the cost of the property when it was purchased.

How complicated is the process? There are many factors that can affect this process, which can vary from property to property. Every effort is made to ensure that this is as simple and timely as possible.

When is my donation accepted? After the receipt of the necessary documents and information, and an inspection of the property, United Relief Foundation will be able to determine if property can be received as a charitable donation and inform you accordingly.

Who pays for expenses? Expenses incurred during the process are generally accepted as the responsibility of the donor. There are exceptions to this and under certain circumstances; an agreement can be made to share the expense of the acquisition of your charitable donation.

What costs can I expect to incur during the donation process? Every donation is considered on a case-by-case basis. Generally, the donor is responsible for all of the regular costs associated with the property until the acquisition of the property by United Relief Foundation. There are of course exceptions to this.

At what point will my responsibility to the property I’m donating end? The donor’s responsibility stops at the end of the acquisition process.
