Asset-based giving is a tax-smart way to send more to God's Kingdom. Its many benefits include:
Less to taxes – By donating non-cash assets first – rather than selling them first, paying taxes, and giving the net proceeds – you typically receive a tax deduction for the full fair-market value of your gift, as well as avoid capital gains taxes.
More to ministry – The capital gains taxes you save from giving the asset directly to charity means more goes to support the work of God's Kingdom, instead of going to the government.
Personal savings – Because you receive the full tax deduction for the fair-market value of the asset, you'll see great savings on your personal income tax returns. This means more money stays in your pocket for your lifestyle expenses or additional giving.
