Did you know that 90% of America’s wealth is in non-cash assets?

What are Non-Cash Gifts?

Non-cash gifts are items of value given to a charitable cause like Jewish Voice. They are sometimes called “gifts in kind” and their donation is also known as “asset-based giving.”

Non-cash gifts are assets that can be converted into cash. They include such things as cars, trucks, boats, yachts, RVs, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real estate, oil, gas, mineral rights, works of art, collectibles, closely held stock and business inventory. It’s even possible to donate a business you would like to sell!

Your non-cash gift to Jewish Voice can result in excellent tax benefits for you. In addition, by giving directly to JVMI, you can maximize your donation by avoiding third-party involvement.

More Impact for Your Donation

By directly donating non-cash assets to Jewish Voice, not only do you bypass the time and concern spent on selling the items yourself, you most often can:

  • Circumvent transaction fees involved in liquidating your assets
  • Eliminate costly maintenance of non-liquid assets
  • Avoid capital gains tax liabilities in most cases
  • Maximize your impact by being able to give more
  • Receive full market value for your tax receipts
  • Multiply your giving through the donation of appreciated assets for which your initial investment was much less than their value today
