Donating assets like real estate or cryptocurrency can allow you to make a significant impact on your favorite causes.
Cash isn’t the only way to give. You can potentially make a greater impact on the causes you care about by donating a non-cash asset. While cash makes up 85% of charitable donations, it accounts for only 7% of wealth in the United States.
Non-cash assets represent an enormous amount of untapped giving potential.
A non-cash asset can be any item of appreciating value, like privately held stock, farm equipment, real estate or cryptocurrency. Donating assets other than cash can have various benefits and advantages. Many options can provide you with income during your lifetime, significant tax benefits — or both.
Non-cash assets allow you to make a significant impact on your favorite causes. For more than 80 years, the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation has helped Minnesotans turn these goods into gifts so that you can support organizations and causes you care about most.

Our experienced Foundation gift planners work with you and your advisors to define your charitable goals and help you determine which assets to give and when. We sell the donated assets efficiently and for the best possible price. Most often, we can sell the assets tax-free, which leaves 100% of the proceeds available for your charitable fund. From that fund you can give to your favorite charities now or in the future. You may also be entitled to a charitable tax deduction for your gift.
