— for our cities, our communities, and our world. Your generosity — from support for existing programs and centers to enhanced initiatives and future centers — makes a meaningful impact and enables ULI to fulfill its mission.
Explore the ways in which you can give to ULI, whether through outright gifts to make an immediate impact or planned gifts that look to the future. Thank you for your support.
**If you live in Canada, Europe, Asia, or Australia, please contact the ULI Foundation for assistance with your charitable contribution.
Your outright gift of cash, securities, or other liquid assets will be put to immediate use at ULI.
All gifts of real estate require prior approval by ULI. A gift of real estate may be a principal residence or vacation home, a rental property, a commercial building, or a lot or land. The gift may be the entire property or a fractional interest in the property. Contact the Foundation to discuss the process for making a real estate gift.
Your deferred gift benefits you now and provides support for ULI’s future. Contact the Foundation to develop a gift plan that meets your financial and philanthropic goals.
Wills, Living Trusts, and Bequests
The easiest and most common form of deferred gift is a charitable bequest in your will or living trust. We have sample bequest language and more information.
Gifts that Provide Income
A lifetime income gift, such as a charitable gift annuity or a charitable remainder trust, can provide you with fixed or variable payments for life. You can receive tax benefits and deductions as well.
Charitable Lead Trust
Charitable lead trusts support ULI now and allow your family to receive the asset in the future with a significantly reduced tax liability once the pledged amount is fulfilled.
Gifts of Retirement Plans
When ULI is named as a retirement plan beneficiary, whether primary or contingent, estate taxes do not apply. This allows you to give a larger gift than you may have anticipated.
Retained Life Estate
You can give a personal residence to ULI but continue to live in it or rent it out during your lifetime, paying only general maintenance, insurance, and taxes. The property is removed from your taxable estate and you receive an immediate federal income tax deduction.
