Do you want to help your favorite causes thrive and wish you had more to share?

Donating goods such as real estate, privately held stock or farm equipment allows you to make a significant impact on your favorite causes.

While cash is the most common charitable gift, donating goods or other assets are often more beneficial to both nonprofits and donors. Many options can provide income during your lifetime or significant tax benefits — or both.

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.
