GET CREATIVE WITH YOUR GIVING

Giving from your income is often the first thing people think of when considering giving. In addition to giving income, you can convert non-cash items into cash donations to give, or in some cases, give those non-cash items directly.

Personal Assets

Real Estate

  • Personal or Commercial
  • Property must be free of debt
  • Could avoid paying capital gains tax, but still receive a tax deduction on the donation

Investments

  • Stocks, bonds, mutual funds
  • Cash value life insurance policies
  • Could avoid paying capital gains tax, but still receive a tax deduction on the donation

*Tax implications are an important consideration for givers of these gifts. Always consult your CPA, tax attorney, or licensed financial advisor.

Hidden Treasures at Home

You move it, store it, insure it, and dust it. We all have those things in our home. Do you have collectibles, valuable heirlooms, or antiques that could be contributed to the church for sale? This could include: automobiles, jewelry, antiques, sports memorabilia, and collections of value (stamps, baseball cards, coins, etc).

If you have hidden treasure that you would like to donate to Building Brentwood, please email
