Help Your Clients With End Of Year Charitable Giving Tips

Contributions of noncash assets to a charitable fund at the end of the calendar year can be quick, easy, and a great philanthropic solution for your clients.

Complex Assets

The Community Foundation Tampa Bay can accept contributions of complex assets such as stock, business interests, real estate, privately owned assets, or even cryptocurrency. Charitable deductions for these contributions are generally based on the assets’ fair market value. Please note, some nonprofit organizations cannot accept these types of donations, so the Community Foundation can help accept these types of gifts on their behalf. Additionally, contribution of complex assets to a private foundation is typically limited to cost basis.

Tax Advantages

Contributions of stock, cash, or other assets to a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) may provide the donor with an immediate tax deduction, which can be especially attractive in years when the donor has a taxable or unforeseen life event, like a surge of highly appreciate stock, inheritance, or business sale. All growth and income earned on DAF assets is tax-free to both the donor and the fund.
