Non-cash giving

Give more, more wisely

By donating long-term, appreciated assets such as stocks, real estate, and business interests before the sale, you can potentially reduce taxes and send more to charities.

A smarter way to give

You probably dream of giving significantly more to the charities you love, but often that seems out of reach. With non-cash giving at NCF, it’s possible. You transfer part or all your asset to NCF before the sale, thereby potentially reducing or eliminating capital gains taxes, and then we liquidate the asset at the right time. The net proceeds go to your Giving Fund, which you can use to go online to send more to the causes you love.

Less to taxes

You typically receive a tax deduction for the fair-market value of your gift.

More to charity

The capital gains taxes you potentially save from giving directly means more goes to support charities.

Personal savings

Because you receive the full tax deduction, you may see significant savings on your income tax returns.

The typical giver

IRS statistics show that most people give from cash, even though their wealth is held in non-cash assets*.

The results of giving from net worth

This table shows the impact of giving a 3% non-voting interest in a $10M family business (S-corp), with $1 million of K-1 income.

Net cash flow$337,380$471,180

The “After” column sums $1.3M because the $300,000 charitable gift came from the company value, not out of earnings. It represents just the first year, but the gift could be repeated annually for more giving. The example above assumes a 5% state tax rate.
