Non-cash Assets Can Make Excellent Charitable Gifts
Do you want to help your favorite nonprofits thrive and wish you had more to share? Many donors make their gifts with cash, without knowing that non-cash gifts are often more beneficial to both nonprofits and donors. Less than 7% of household wealth is held in cash and checking accounts, according to Certified Financial Planner Russell James, J.D., Ph.D.
Non-cash gifts allow donors to make a significant impact on their favorite causes, but most nonprofits aren’t equipped to accept goods such as real estate, privately held stock or farm equipment.
We make it easy to turn your goods into gifts.
At the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation, we’ve been helping Minnesotans give non-cash assets to support their favorite causes for more than 80 years.
