Most charitable gifts are given in the form of cash because this is so familiar. However, this is not always the most cost-effective way for you to give.
You may be able to increase your potential impact – and experience significant tax savings – by giving non-cash assets to Harvest USA.
Examples of Non-Cash Assets
- Stock or marketable securities
- Real estate
- Business interests
- Farm commodities
- Life insurance
- Retirement benefits
- Gifts from a will or trust
Benefits of Giving Non-Cash Assets
- Tax-wise. Receive a fair market value deduction at the time of your gift and avoid tax liability on the sale of appreciated assets.
- Eliminate hassles. Give assets that you no longer need or want to manage (such as rental properties or vacation homes) for the benefit of Harvest USA’s daily ministry.
If you want to give a non-cash asset to Harvest USA, please contact Scott Pickering, our Chief Operating Officer, at 215-482-0111 (ext. 104) or firstname.lastname@example.org. Scott would be glad to speak with you and advise you on next steps.
