Tangible Personal Property
Did you realize that valuable antiques, stamp and coin collections, works of art, cars, boats, and other personal property may be able to be used to support our work? Donors who are making plans to liquidate their estates often consider making a tangible personal property gift to Saint Michael’s College. Some of your personal items may make suitable charitable gifts today or in the future. In some cases you may be able to use your non-income producing property in exchange for a federal income tax charitable deduction. The financial benefits of the gift depend on whether we can use the property in a way that is related to our mission.
For example, related use property – e.g. selected books or musical instruments - may be accepted and therefore they would be deductible at the full fair market value. These sorts of specialty gifts, are considered and reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the College's Gift Acceptance Committee.
Please contact Carla Francis, Annual Giving and Stewardship Coordinator, at 802-654-2618 or email@example.com for more details if you are considering making a gift of tangible personal property to the College.
