Contribute Complex Assets to Your Fund

You can contribute assets other than cash to your fund.

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. Rely on our expertise to help you quickly and easily donate hard-to-value assets to charitable funds.

We specialize in accepting donations of complex assets, including:

  • Limited Liability Company (LLC) Interests

Other Alternative Asset Gifts

This list is not intended to be all-inclusive of acceptable alternative assets. Gift acceptance is dependent upon asset review and approval.

Benefits

You may be able to avoid capital gains tax on gifts of appreciated assets. We look at each donation individually to maximize your donation and tax-related benefits. The Community Foundation is a public charity, so you will receive the maximum tax deduction allowed by law for your donation.
