Real Estate

Florida State University welcomes gifts of real estate. Gifting appreciated real estate is an excellent choice for a charitable gift and, in most cases, a donor is entitled to a charitable deduction for the full gross market value of the property. The newly formed Florida State University Real Estate Foundation accepts real estate gifts and has adopted certain policies and procedures to make the process work smoothly, taking all parties into consideration.

Donor stock transfers allow donors to gift their stocks to Florida State University in three ways: electronically (DTC), physical certificate in donor’s name and physical certificate naming the FSU Foundation.

More Information


A growing number of alumni and friends contribute gifts-in-kind, such as works of art, antique furnishings or rare books and manuscripts for the library.
