Appreciated Assets/Non-Cash Gifts
The federal tax law makes gifts of appreciated assets — those that have grown in value — more advantageous than giving cash. Because the appreciation is not subject to capital gain tax and you receive a tax deduction for the full value of the gift, you can actually contribute more money to ministry through non-cash gifts.

Other Assets: Through our partner The Barnabas Foundation, GENEVA is able to receive a variety of assets as charitable gifts, allowing you to gift the asset that provides the best tax advantage. Examples of non-liquid assets include: real estate, business interests, life insurance, commodities, and IRA/retirement assets, and tangible personal property. Since certain restrictions and requirements surround the giving of various types of assets, Barnabas Foundation staff help determine the best asset to gift in each situation.
