Charitable giving encompasses more than just cash donations. You may be able to attain a new level of giving you may not have considered possible through assets you already own. You can use our expertise to quickly and easily donate hard-to-value assets to donor-advised funds. To make a donation of a privately held business interest to an existing donor-advised fund at the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation, please complete our Donate a Privately Held Business Interest Form.
We specialize in accepting donations of complex assets, including:
Charitable Gifts of Real Estate
- Personal Residence
- Commercial Property
- Farmland or Undeveloped Property
Charitable Gifts of Privately Held Business Interests
- C-Corp or S-Corp Stock
- Limited Liability Company (LLC) Interests
- Limited Partnership Interests
Other Alternative Asset Gifts
- Life Insurance Policies
- Retirement Plans
- Negotiable Instruments
- Oil and Gas Interests
- Private Equity
This list is not intended to be all-inclusive of acceptable alternative assets. Gift acceptance is dependent upon asset review and approval.
The Community Foundation is a public charity, so you will receive the maximum tax deduction allowed by law for your donation. You can also avoid capital gains tax, and you may be eligible to receive a lifetime income stream. We look at each donation individually and create charitable giving plans that maximize gifts to the community and provide bottom-line benefits to you.
