Date: February 26, 2019

Program Time: 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. 

Our Real Estate Gift Acceptance Procedure Manual was born out of necessity. This webinar will cover each phase of the acceptance process using examples from the recent gift of a retained estate for a term of years. We will take participants step by step from the beginning (initial donor interaction or proposal) through the “finish-line” (recording the deed and beyond). Phase one, the introduction, will cover how to have and document clear and consistent communication with the donor throughout the entire transaction; phase two will define due diligence and explain the importance of receiving conditional acceptance from leadership; and the final phase explains how to successfully close the real estate gift. Significant focus will be given to the importance of continuous donor communication, the gathering of key information and documents using templates, the importance of due diligence including utilizing real estate professionals such as brokers, title companies and appraisers, as well as how to create an organizational work-flow chart and template documents.

Learning Objectives

  • Phase I – Participants will understand why consistent and clear communication with the donor regarding expectations and anticipated outcomes for real estate gift is critical.
  • Phase II– Participants will learn the importance of vetting the potential gift of real estate, performing due diligence and obtaining the conditional acceptance from leadership.
  • Phase III – Participants will learn how to successfully close a real estate gift and how to administer the post-acceptance process.
