Assets We Accept

We work with donors to fulfill their philanthropic intent, utilizing a variety of different asset types to achieve their giving goals. We accept gifts of cash and public securities, but also have significant experience monetizing complex gifts of private stock and real estate.

Types of Assets

CASH

Gifts of cash include currency, checks, or money orders made payable to the Community Foundation of Utah.

PUBLIC AND PRIVATE STOCK

Gifts of highly appreciated public securities or private stock generally qualify donors for a charitable deduction based on the value of the gift, without incurring a capital gain. The donated stocked can be gifted tax-free to a Donor Advised Fund or other fund at the Community Foundation of Utah.

REAL ESTATE

Gifts of commercial or residential real estate allow donors to make a meaningful contribution while receiving valuable tax advantages.

ESTATE GIFTS

Planned gifts allow donors to create a lasting legacy by creating a fund with the Community Foundation of Utah and naming the fund in their will, or as the beneficiary of any retirement plan or life insurance policy.

PRIVATE FOUNDATIONS OR OTHER DONOR ADVISED FUND ASSETS

Private foundations looking to alleviate the administrative burden of managing a foundation, or Donor Advised Funds concerned with succession planning, can transfer those assets to a Donor Advised Fund with the Community Foundation of Utah. Private foundations may retain their name and philanthropic goals with no tax or transfer penalty. Donor Advised Funds may establish a giving plan to support their giving long past their lifetime.

IRA CHARITABLE ROLLOVER

If donors are 70½ or older and have “required minimum distributions” that must be taken from an IRA, $100,000 of the annual Required Minimum Distribution from a traditional IRA can be donated to a fund held at the Community Foundation of Utah to benefit the community for years to come. While these assets cannot be contributed to a Donor Advised Fund, donors can create or add to a Field of Interest Fund, a Designated Endowment Fund, the Community Endowment, or support an existing initiative with the Community Foundation of Utah.

OTHER ASSETS

Additional gifts could include business interests, life insurance policies, promissory notes, royalties and distribution rights, and stock options.
