Property is a gift-in-kind that can be donated to benefit Oregon Tech. Did you know that you can donate your house while you are still living in it and take a tax deduction for the value of the property? There are many ways to give a gift of real estate or property to benefit Oregon Tech.
A Gift-In-Kind is a donation of a tangible or intangible asset such as art, books, equipment, automobiles, inventory, personal property, other physical assets, material, or services which represent value to the college.
