Bargain Sale
Eastern Washington University Foundation purchases your property for less than fair market value. You receive the cash and a charitable deduction for the difference between the market value and purchase price.

How a Bargain Sale Works

  1. You sell Eastern Washington University Foundation your property for a price less than fair market value.
  2. You receive the cash from the sale and a charitable deduction for your gift to Eastern Washington University Foundation (the difference between the market value and purchase price).
  3. While you may owe some tax on the amount you receive from Eastern Washington University Foundation, the charitable deduction from your gift could offset your taxes this year.
