Beyond Cash: Using Gift Planning to Further the Donor Conversation

Wealthy Americans hold their wealth primarily in assets which are not cash. However, most charitable donations are made with cash- perhaps because that is what charities are requesting. Courtney Tsai, of Schwab Charitable’s Charitable Strategies Group will discuss:

  • How to expand fundraising conversations to include non-cash assets, such as privately held business interests, restricted stock, real estate, cryptocurrency, and other appreciated assets.
  • How to explain the multiple tax benefits of gifts of non-cash assets.
  • How to work with a third-party charity (such as a Donor Advised Fund) to accept gifts of non-cash assets which your charity may not accept directly.
