If, in the sound judgment of the board, the needs of the community require the use of property not needed for school purposes, for charitable, economic development or other community use, notwithstanding the provisions of section seven of this article, the board may convey by deed or by lease, for nominal consideration, to a private, nonprofit, tax-exempt organization, such tax-exempt status having been granted by the Internal Revenue Service under the provisions of 26 United States code section 501 (c) (3) through (8) inclusive, (19) or (23), upon such terms and conditions as will permit title to revert to the board if the organization is dissolved or ceases to use the property for the intended purpose within the first five years of such conveyance: Provided, That such reversion provision shall be subordinated to such extent as may be required solely in order to obtain a loan for the purpose of improving the property. In any absolute conveyance under this section, the transfer shall be subject to the provisions that all liability for hazards associated with the premises are to be assumed by the recipient. The board shall inform any prospective donee of known or suspected hazards associated with the property.
