What is non-cash giving?

Maybe you’ve never even given it a thought because you’ve never heard of it , or you just didn’t think you could.
First, just what is a non-cash gift?  Anything that is not cash: items like stocks, real estate, business interests, retirement plans, estate gifts, gift cards, vehicles, boats, cell phones, laptops, game consoles, electronics, gems, precious metals, commodities, business inventory, business equity/income, a charitable gift annuities, etc.

Advantages of non-cash giving
There are many, but the most significant advantages are:
  1. Bigger Tax Deduction with full contribution credit of your gift to the donor.
  2. Eliminate or significantly lesson your capital gains tax

We've made it easy!
Immanuel has always been able to receive such gifts, but they were a bit complicated for the donor and recipient to process.  Well, believe it or not, non-cash giving to your church has become a lot easier for you and the recipient.
