Asset Based Giving

Tangible Items

One of the most attractive features of a Co:Mission Giving Fund is that the donor is not solely limited to liquid (cash) assets.  Through a Co:Mission Giving Fund, other items can be given to achieve your charitable goals.

Tangible property can often be used to make charitable gifts. Watch Brief Video

Here are several that have been recently used to make charitable gifts:

Stocks, Bonds and Mutual Funds

Give Smart: Give Stock

You want to invest in the ministries and causes you care the most about, but you want to make sure you’re doing this wisely. You can be generous and wise – it’s both smart and simple.

Consider donating securities. A gift of appreciated stock means that you may be able to avoid paying capital gains taxes while claiming a charitable tax deduction for the full fair market value. Likewise your bond investment can pay healthy dividends to ministry. This allows you to steward your resources carefully while giving generously.

If you have appreciated stocks or bonds in your portfolio – NOW may be the time to make a gift. You may be able to leverage your generosity and reduce your tax obligation.

Business Inventory

Inventory for Faith

Liquidating inventory is part of doing business every day. Knowing you might be able to take those same assets and utilize them for ministry provides you with one more tool in your charitable giving toolbox.

We can help you make that transition when you donate your excess inventory to your Co:Mission Giving Fund. We will help determine if your inventory can be easily transitioned, and give you a straightforward assessment if it cannot.

Begin the process here.

Life Insurance

Redirecting Insurance

Sometimes we outlive the need for insurance. We buy it to provide for family, business, and to be assured we will be able to meet living expenses. But as we grow older, often we live beyond the reason we bought the original policy.

Donating existing or new life insurance policies can provide you with immediate tax benefits and charitable dollars now or in the future. Please contact us at 855-266-4774 to discuss a gift of life insurance that can leverage your generosity.

Grain Commodities

Reap More From What You Sow

You probably know you can lower your taxable income by making a charitable donation, but did you know we can accept donations of soybeans, corn or wheat? Here are the top 5 reasons for donating commodities versus cash:

  • Reduce federal/state income taxes as well as self-employment taxes (that alone could count as 3 reasons)
  • Deduct all of your operating expenses
  • Keep more cash in your pocket for next year
  • Reduce elevator and storage costs
  • Do something good for others (which you were probably going to do anyway)

At Co:Mission Foundation, we want to help you as you help others by accepting commodity donations. The donation can go to your Co:Mission Giving Fund or directly to a ministry of your choice.

We’ve even made the donation process super simple. Enter your donation on the commodities button, and we’ll handle it from here.
