How It Works

  • You deed your home, vacation home, undeveloped property, or commercial building to The White House Historical Association.
  • WHHA may use the property or sell it and use the proceeds.


  • You receive an income tax deduction for the fair market value of the real estate.
  • You pay no capital gains tax on the transfer.
  • You can direct the proceeds from your gift to a specific program at WHHA.
