  1. Who Gets Barbie and Ken?

    Who Gets Barbie and Ken?

    You name it – Barbie dolls, stamps, coins, artwork, tapestries, whatever – someone, somewhere, probably collects it. Some of your donors are very likely to have valuable collections of “stuff.” Oftentimes, however, children or other heirs have different tastes and don't want their parents' collection.

    What can your donors do with it? They can give it to your nonprofit. This brochure provides a compelling explanation of the benefits such a gift can confer on the donors themselves as well as your organization.

    Can also be used as newsletter content, or as an article/column.

    Help your donors to think outside the box! Depending on what they give, your organization may be able to use it (for example if it is mission-related, such as an art collection given to a museum), or sell it and use the proceeds in support of your mission. Either way, this is a mutually-beneficial way for your donors' valuable “stuff” to find a home!

    How the copy is structured:

    • “A Nation of Collectors (Gifts of Tangible Property)”
    • Calculating the charitable deduction
    • Property related to [YOUR NONPROFIT]'s mission
    • Property not related to the mission

  2. Got Real Estate?

    Got Real Estate?

    It's common knowledge that one of most important assets your donors hold is real estate: their personal residences, vacation homes, undeveloped land, rental, and commercial property. And they could have real estate that their children don't want or that they don't have anyone to whom they want to leave it.

    For these donors, this brochure brings an important message — that there are ways to use real estate to make a meaningful gift to your nonprofit. It highlights the ways real estate can be used to fund their gift.

    How the copy is structured:

    • Introduction
    • “Even if real estate has taken a beating, it can still make an excellent gift.”
    • Give a share.
    • Put the property to work for you (funding a Charitable Remainder Trust).
    • Give away your home without moving out.

  12. Gift Acceptance Policies

    Gift Acceptance Policies

    Your organization is approached by a potential donor who is offering to make a very large gift but it is not cash or even appreciated stock.

    It is an asset unlike anything your organization has received before. Your President or CEO turns to you as the development director and asks, "what should we do?"

    You need to reach your goals for the year and this gift would make this a record fundraising year.

    So, what should you do?

    Gifts such as that described above have the capacity to transform an organization or cause an early end to the tenure of the development director. The decision to accept or reject a gift such as this should never be at the discretion of the development director but should be guided by a comprehensive set of policies to determine what your organization will accept as gifts and under what circumstances.

    You could try to write such policies yourself or even pay an expensive outside attorney to do so from scratch for you. We are offering a sound alternative: comprehensive gift acceptance policies that have been reviewed and approved by legal counsel, are based on nationally recognized guidelines, and are based on those being used by the most advanced development operations in the country. Remember, gift acceptance policies must be customized to the particular nonprofit. These documents are just the conversation starter. Legal counsel must advise on gift acceptance policies and gift agreements under the laws of each state. So after you put these together, run it by your attorney.

    Our experts are here to guide you through the process of adapting these guidelines to your organization as well. We can also advise you on how to move the guideline through a process of being approved by internal stakeholders and your Board.

    Call us at 800-490-7090 for more information.

    Services spearheaded by Stuart Sullivan and includes a 2-hour personal consultation.
