A Practical Step-by-Step Guide to Accepting Non-Cash Gifts

A business concept of a businessman claiming a stack of money or protecting his assets by shielding a pile of money with his hands

LESS THAN 10% OF AMERICA’S WEALTH IS HELD IN CASH. IF YOU DON’T HAVE THE EXPERTISE TO GUIDE DONORS TO MAKE NON-CASH GIFTS, YOU ARE MISSING OUT!

A generous donor wants to contribute a valuable non-cash asset to your nonprofit. You want to say “YES”.  However, you worry that you’ll make a mistake and looking foolish in front of the donor and your organization.

I get it. Non-cash gifts can feel intimidating and even a bit scary. Throughout my career as gift planner, I’ve facilitated hundreds of non-cash gifts and have taught hundreds of people to do it too.

This book will eliminate the fears you have when it comes to non-cash gifts. It will provide you with:

  • Fundamental knowledge of each asset type.
  • A step-by-step process you can use with virtually every non-cash gift.
  • Proven internal procedures you can begin using right away.
  • Detailed intake checklists so you can be sure to collect all the right information.

"The power of non-cash gifts is undeniable. They are powerful for the donor. They allow the donor to give smarter, simultaneously leveraging multiple levels of tax benefits. They are powerful for the nonprofit. Changing the donor’s mindset from giving out of disposable income to giving out of wealth can massively increase the magnitude of current and future gifts.

This is all true, but it doesn’t address the biggest challenge: How can you actually DO THIS? That’s the real problem. And now, this problem has a real solution!  Dana Holt’s book Turning Wealth into What Matters provides that practical step-by-step guide for making non-cash fundraising a reality.  It takes the fear out of non-cash fundraising and shows you exactly how to turn this idea into real-world results for your organization.

If you want to take your fundraising to the next level, this is the place to start!"
