Michigan (PRUnderground) July 30th, 2019
Driving Successful Lives, a Michigan non-profit organization that accepts used car donations as a way to provide funding to other non-profits and churches that it partners with, has added commercial & residential real estate donation functionality. A spokesman for the non-profit organization reported that the addition of real estate donations will “drastically increase the dollar amounts that we are able to contribute to worthwhile causes.”
“Having the ability to work with individual donors, companies and real estate professionals will help us to provide much-needed funding to many more families – while providing significant tax benefits to the donors. Rather than sitting on a possibly inactive property, the donor get out from under the property while seeing both financial and social benefits. We can take these (oftentimes) depreciating properties and put them back into use. With some real estate donations, our partner charities have the opportunity to house families that are sorely in need of a home.”
Driving Successful Lives will accept real estate donations that include, but are not limited to: single homes, multi-unit apartment buildings, storefronts, warehouses, etc. “Our goal is to be able to put houses back in circulation as homes and put other types of real estate to good use to benefit as many families 7 individuals in need as possible.”
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.
