Giving Complex Assets

Charitable giving encompasses more than just cash donations. Families and businesses can tap into Greater Horizons' expertise to quickly and easily donate hard-to-value assets, and open family or corporate funds to further their charitable goals.

Your clients may be able to attain a new level of giving they might not have considered possible through assets they already own. Greater Horizons specializes in accepting complex assets for charitable purposes, including:

Charitable Gifts of Real Estate
  • Personal Residence
  • Commercial Property
  • Farmland or Undeveloped Property
  • Other Real Property
Charitable Gifts of Business Interests
  • Closely Held Stock (S-Corp, C-Corp, LLC)
  • Partnership Interests
Charitable Gifts of Personal Property
  • Artwork
  • Royalties, Copyrights, Patents
  • Valuable Collectibles
Other Alternative Asset Gifts
  • Life Insurance Policies
  • Retirement Plans
  • Negotiable Instruments
  • Oil and Gas Interests
  • Private Equity

This list is not intended to be all-inclusive of acceptable alternative assets. Gift acceptance is dependent upon asset review and approval.


Greater Horizons is a public charity, so your clients will receive the maximum tax deduction allowed by law, avoid capital gains tax and may be eligible to receive a lifetime income stream. We look at each donation individually and create giving plans that maximize gifts to the community and provide bottom-line benefits to the donor.

Greater Horizons is not engaged in rendering legal, accounting or other professional service. If legal advice or other expertise is required, the services of a competent professional should be sought.
