Big River Community Land Trust is looking to build homes for teachers, medical staff, seniors, essential workers, retail clerks, and other wage earners in Hood River and Klickitat counties. We envision providing affordable homeownership for people who are priced out of the current housing market while also enhancing the vibrancy of our community. We need your help!

If you own surplus or underutilized property in Hood River or Klickitat county, please consider donating or selling it at below market pricing to the BRCLT. In a nutshell, here are the benefits to you:

  • Donating your land offers you an income tax deduction for its full appraised value, lets you avoid any capital gains taxes, and eliminates property taxes on that parcel.
  • Selling your land at below market pricing gives you income from the sale plus the tax-reducing benefits of a donation, while eliminating property taxes on that parcel.

Stable housing that lets families, young professionals and seniors lead purposeful lives is crucial to a healthy economy and year-round community. And while everyone is talking about affordable housing in the Gorge, you are in a unique position to help bring about real change.

To talk in person about the possibility of donating or selling your land to the Big River Community Land Trust,

I welcome you to call me at 208 310-1383

Thank you for your interest,
Doug Baker
Big River Community Land Trust
