Unlocking Your Donors' Non-Cash Treasure Chests

By Richard M. Horwood

National Conference on Philanthropic Planning
New Orleans, Louisiana
October 4, 2012

Charitable giving does not necessarily mean a gift of cash. In fact, twenty‐three million U.S. taxpayers itemize more than $40 billion in deductions for non‐cash charitable contributions, including real estate, securities and business interests, IRAs, antiques, and objects of art. As charities become more sophisticated and people enjoy longer lives, it is expected that non cash‐charitable giving will increase accordingly. Non‐cash charitable giving provides an opportunity for donors and charitable organizations, as well as their advisors ‐ all having the same end goal in mind: the greatest overall benefit.
