(Part 2 in the 2-Part Legacy Giving At Lunch Discussion Spring Series)

May 14, 2019 at Noon-1pm

Leave a Legacy MN is pleased to announce our line-up for the Legacy Giving at Lunch web-based learning series. Each Legacy Giving at Lunch is a free, one-hour learning opportunity you can plug into from your desk. Join us for the full series or just the sessions that fit with your schedule and download the recordings online.

In 2017, $1.85 trillion in assets changed hands through mergers and acquisitions. Private business owners (18.3 million Americans) represent a large portion of that transition, 79% of whom identify as philanthropic.  Donations of noncash assets such as real estate, tangible property and privately held stock have become assets donors commonly explore donating to charity.  This session will explore how to help business owners convert their illiquid interests into philanthropic capital.

Case studies will include:

  • A $4 million gift of a single-member LLC interest holding commercial real estate in Wisconsin
  • A $800 thousand gift of an LLC interest holding commercial real estate in Minnesota
  • Gifts of farm machinery, artwork, grain and more

Learning Objectives:

  • Why business owners give charitably, what motivates them, and how that might alter the fundraising approach
  • The most important things to think about with donors considering giving a business interest or other non-cash asset
  • Which vehicles and strategies work the best for gifts noncash assets
