Real Estate Donation Program

Donating real estate to WNIN is a great way in helping keep quality programming on-air. Each real estate donation helps us to provide creative, informative, and engaging programming to viewers locally.

Our mission is to use public media to enrich people's lives and better our communities.

About Real Estate Donations

WNIN partners with CARS (Charitable Adult Rides & Services), our longtime partner with us on our successful vehicle donation program, to process real estate donations to benefit WNIN. Our program takes any property type (land, homes, commercial) in any location so long as there is equity. Even if you owe back taxes, have a mortgage balance, or deferred maintenance, it's no problem. We will pay off all loans, liens, commissions owed and 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!
