Gifts of Personal Property
How It Works
- You transfer a valuable painting, antiques, or other personal property to the Taft School.
- the Taft School may hold and display the property or use it in the furtherance of its mission.
- the Taft School may sell the property at some point in the future and use the proceeds for its mission.
- You receive an immediate income tax deduction for the appraised value of your gift and pay no capital gains tax, so long as the gift can be used by the Taft School to carry out its mission.
- In certain cases, you can use personal property to fund a life-income gift that provides you and/or other loved ones with an income now and benefits the Taft School in the future.
- Without giving cash during your life, you can make a gift that is immediately beneficial to the Taft School.
