Gift of Personal Residence or Farm with Retained Life Estate


How It Works

  1. Transfer title to personal residence or farm to the Indianapolis Zoo
  2. No change in your lifestyle—you (and spouse) occupy and enjoy residence or farm for life
  3. The Indianapolis Zoo keeps or sells property after your death(s)


  • No out-of-pocket cost for substantial gift to the Indianapolis Zoo
  • Federal income-tax deduction for remainder value of your residence or farm
  • You (and spouse) can occupy residence for life
