All donations of real property are processed through the Department of General Services Real Estate Services Division. The division also works with other departments to accept these donations. Staff works with prospective donors, estate planners, and estate attorneys to assure that the donor’s desires are met and that the proceeds of the sale or the revenue generated by the gifted property or other asset is directed to the project or program designated by the donor.  All donated property must undergo an environmental assessment, including an inspection for hazardous materials.

If you are considering any gift or donation please contact the Real Estate Services Division at (858) 694-2291 to obtain more information.
