Real Estate Program

Donating real estate to WHQR is a great way to provide support and funding for the public radio programs you love. Your support helps our mission in providing a reliable source of public radio, sustainably and efficiently, to serve our listeners.

About Real Estate Donations

WHQR has partnered with CARS (Charitable Adult Rides & Services), our longtime partner on our successful vehicle donation program, to process real estate donations to benefit WHQR. Our program takes any property type (land, homes, commercial) in any location as long as there is equity. Even if you owe back taxes, have a mortgage balance, or have deferred maintenance, it's no problem. We will pay off all loans, liens, and commissions owed and we pay all closing costs. If you have a real estate asset that is costing you money or not being utilized, donating it is a great way to give back and you may even claim a significant tax deduction!
