Tons of Donors are out there, but Charity Needs Help Effectively Reaching Them
Detroit, MI (PRUnderground) February 7th, 2023
Driving Successful Lives is a 501 c3 charity that takes non-cash donations of unwanted non-income-producing real estate in varying conditions and turns them into significant gifts of cash, food, cars, and housing for those in real need. It is vital that the organization obtains help to garner enough real estate donations to meet the needs they are faced with. Some of the work done by the charity is highlighted here: https://drivingsuccessfullives.org/blog/
According to Ralph Mark Maupin, Director of Driving Successful Lives, “There are thousands of real estate owners that have properties that they’d like to dispose of, but we do not know how to reach many of them.” Examples of ideal property owners seeking to donate:
Dealing with non-paying/problem tenants or vagrants living in the property
Years of paying taxes and upkeep for a property that is hard to sell
Properties with no insurance & risk of lawsuits due to being open to trespass
Needing immediate tax deductions do income.
Property with title issues that need to be worked out
Probated property that is unwanted
Vacant land or other non-income-producing property
Property that is more valued as a tax deduction
Vacant non-usable factory or industrial property
Unwanted vacation lots
Storm, fire, or flood damaged property – resulting in City ordinance issues
Landlord’s who are simply exhausted with the stress of management
“These property owners can gain a tax deduction for the current fair market value of their property in the current tax year and they can carry forward any remaining part of the unused deduction for up to 5 years – while making a real difference in the lives of those in need. Reach out to us at: https://drivingsuccessfullives.org/. Occasionally there are properties that we cannot take, but we are experts in liquidating most properties.”
“In some cases, we help other charities who are not prepared to take on the risks associated with disposing of donated properties. In those situations, we do the footwork and pay them 30% of net sale proceeds.”
There are many great reasons to consider donating real estate to charity. Typically, donors have been motivated to give for reasons like substantial tax deductions, freedom from unwanted property holdings, quick turnaround on real estate assets, efficient liquidation of corporate real estate, and ultimately, the ideal way to give a generous gift to a favorite charity.
“We are very much in need of assistance in our efforts to attract new donors. If you have advice for Driving Successful Lives please let us know.”
“Driving Successful Lives needs a strong steady flow of real estate donations. We will list the property with the broker that helps to create the donation. If you currently have clients that may benefit from donating a piece of real estate, or if you can think of a way that we can get more donations please contact us at: https://drivingsuccessfullives.org/real-estate-state/“
About Driving Successful Lives
Driving Successful Lives’ mission is to facilitate car donations so that veterans, homeless families, children, those with addictions & other non-profits can benefit from fellow citizens giving-forward.
Every time a person gives to the charity of their choice it may also create a tax benefit for them. The money, the items, and the real property that they have donated to non-profit institutions throughout the tax year may be tax deductible which means that they could end up being the difference between a good tax return and a great tax return. Depending upon the kind of donation and the type of charity or foundation that they chose to donate to, the tax deduction it creates could be very helpful for reducing the amount taxes that they owe. Many successful and wealthy people state that at least to a certain degree, a part of whom they are and what they have become comes at least in part from the practice of giving. Contributing to charities can be a very convenient way to reduce taxes.
