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:

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: 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:
