Charitable giving encompasses more than just cash donations. Families and businesses can tap into the Community Foundation's expertise to quickly and easily donate hard-to-value assets, and open family or corporate funds to further their charitable goals.
Your clients may be able to attain a new level of giving they might not have considered possible through assets they already own. The Community Foundation specializes in accepting complex assets for charitable purposes, including:
Charitable Gifts of Real Estate
- Personal Residence
- Commercial Property
- Farmland or Undeveloped Property
- Other Real Property
Charitable Gifts of Business Interests
- Closely Held Stock (S-Corp, C-Corp, LLC)
- Partnership Interests
Charitable Gifts of Personal Property
- Royalties, Copyrights, Patents
- Valuable Collectibles
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 your clients will receive the maximum tax deduction allowed by law, avoid capital gains tax and may be eligible to receive a lifetime income stream. We look at each donation individually and create giving plans that maximize gifts to the community and provide bottom-line benefits to the donor.
The Community Foundation is not engaged in rendering legal, accounting or other professional service. If legal advice or other expertise is required, the services of a competent professional should be sought.
