Real Estate

Many donors use gifts of real estate to support the Institute. Such gifts may be in the form of a principal residence or vacation home, a farm, a commercial building, a subdivision lot, or unimproved land. They also may be an entire property or a fractional interest in a property. In order to ensure that donors and the Institute get maximum benefit from real estate gifts, all such gifts, whatever their form, require prior approval from the VMI Foundation.

Those who want to make immediate gifts of real estate should contact Warren J. “Buddy” Bryan ’71, VMI Foundation’s Vice President for Major Gifts, at 800-444-1839, ext. 236, or Those who wish to make a gift of real estate through a planned giving vehicle, such as a bequest, should contact the VMI Foundation’s Vice President for Planned Giving, Terrie I. Conrad, at 800-444-1839, ext. 238, or
