Give Complex Assets

Donating Complex Assets Unlocks Substantial Benefits

Charitable giving encompasses more than just cash donations. You may be able to attain a new level of giving you may not have considered possible through assets you already own.

You can use NCF’s expertise to quickly and easily donate hard-to-value assets to a donor advised fund or other types of charitable giving accounts.

NCF specializes in accepting complex assets, including:

  • Gifts of Privately Held Business Interests
    • C-Corp or S-Corp Stock
    • Limited Liability Company (LLC) Interests
    • Limited Partnership Interests
  • Charitable Gifts of Real Estate
    • Personal Residence
    • Commercial Property
    • Farmland or Undeveloped Property
  • Other Alternative Asset Gifts
    • Retirement Plans
    • Negotiable Instruments
    • Oil and Gas Interests
    • Private Equity
    • Cryptocurrency


This list is not intended to be all-inclusive of acceptable alternative assets. Gift acceptance is dependent upon asset review and approval. Qualified charitable distributions from your IRA can be acceptable if you are 70.5 or older.

You may be able to avoid capital gains tax on gifts of appreciated assets. We look at each donation individually to maximize gifts to the community and provide bottom-line benefits to you. Because NCF is a public charity, you will receive the maximum tax deduction allowed by law for your donation.
