Donating Your Non-Cash Assets
As you evaluate your assets, your needs and your desire to serve the Kingdom, you may realize just how much you have to give through non-cash gifts! In many cases, you are better off donating an item than selling it! Here’s why:
- Your unused, unwanted items provide the Mission with funds to continue our programs and services for the homeless.
- By giving an appreciated asset, you avoid capital gains tax on the sale and receive a higher tax deduction. Click here for more information.
- For most non-cash assets, you receive a tax deduction based on the fair market value of your gift.
