In a review of 2016 990s from the nation’s 211 largest charities, Bryan found that a very small minority of the organizations accept any gifts of illiquid assets. Among this small group, only 3 organizations received more than half of all the value from real estate gifts and just 7 organizations received nearly two-thirds of the value from business interest gifts. The vast majority of nonprofit organizations are only seeking and accepting gifts of cash, voluntarily limiting the growth of their fundraising programs. In this presentation recorded at the CGP Conference earlier this month, Bryan encourages charities of all sizes can take to embrace substantial gifts of assets that their supporters surely own and would like to donate.

After reviewing the opportunity for gifts of noncash assets, Bryan walks attendees through four steps that can lead any organization to success with noncash gifts.

  • First: Determine what assets are likely to be donated.
  • Second: Develop a risk tolerance profile for your organization and plot that profile on a risk continuum.
  • Third: Develop sound gift acceptance policies and procedures with risk reduction strategies.
  • Fourth: Develop a gift acceptance model that includes how to refer noncash assets that are not conducive for direct receipt
