Expand your clients’ giving options by partnering with the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation, the go-to place for non-cash asset donations.
Cash makes up only 7 percent of total wealth in the United States — but 85 percent of charitable gifts people make are in cash. Over 93 percent of wealth is held in assets other than cash. Stocks, real estate, farm equipment, artwork and more non-cash assets hold immense potential value for charitable impact.
Donating non-cash assets may provide multiple benefits to your clients while also allowing them to support causes they care about in a more significant way.
Your Go-to Place for Non-cash Assets
Figuring out how to donate non-cash assets is not always easy. Nonprofits often can’t accept assets in their original form. Donors don’t always have the time or expertise to transition their assets in a way that allows them to give.
Having a partner that can advise on, accept and process gifts of non-cash assets can allow you to provide expanded services to your clients — while increasing their satisfaction and ability to impact their community.
At the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation, we have an experienced team that can process the following gifts:
Stock and Mutual Funds
Charitable Life Insurance
Retained Life Estate
Virtual Currency, such as Bitcoin
Privately Held Stock
Each asset is unique. We’ll consult with you and your clients to assess which assets might best suit their charitable giving goals. We will also work with you and your clients to determine the best giving method and then transfer the asset so that it can be used to fulfill your client’s philanthropic vision.
