Gifts of Personal Property

Gift of Personal Property Diagram

How It Works

  • You transfer a valuable painting, antique, or other personal property to USC.
  • USC may hold and display the property or use it in the furtherance of its mission.
  • USC 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 USC 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 USC in the future.
  • Without using cash, you can make a gift that is immediately beneficial to USC.
