Real Estate

You are here

  • You want to donate your home and continue to live in it, you can transfer ownership to Caltech and stay there as long as you wish.
  • You want periodic payments as a benefit of giving real estate, you can receive income for life through a charitable remainder trust.
  • You want to hold on to some but not all of your real estate, you can keep a portion of it and give the rest to Caltech.
  • You want to retain ownership during your lifetime and give through your estate, you can donate your real estate to Caltech with a bequest.
