Any type of asset that you
irrevocably donate to a charitable organization like ACF Western
USA, Inc. results
in a current income tax deduction, but there may be other tax
benefits from your contribution.
If you contribute
appreciated securities that you have held more than one year,
you have the added benefit of avoiding tax on the gain.
You can also give us
tangible personal property (like an art object, prized
collection or antique) and take a deduction for its full fair
market value if the gift is used for our exempt function.
These are but two of the
types of assets you can donate outright to us today. Using
assets other than cash that allows you more flexibility when
planning your gift, and there are even more potential benefits
if you plan your gift creatively.
