Personal Property Gifts

Making a donation of tangible personal property to support The Nature Conservancy may not be the first type of gift you consider - but it can be an excellent way to save on taxes or free yourself of property that is expensive to insure or maintain, while supporting the conservation work you value.

How it works
  1. You transfer a painting, antiques, collectibles or other personal property to The Nature Conservancy.
  2. The Nature Conservancy may elect to hold the property and display or use it in the furtherance of its mission. The Nature Conservancy may elect to sell the property at some point in the future and use the proceeds for its programs.

Gifts of Personal Property Illustration

  • You receive gift credit and an immediate income tax deduction for the appraised value of your gift and pay no capital gains tax, provided your gift satisfies the "related use" requirements of the IRS.
  • In certain cases, you can use personal property to fund a life-income gift, such as a FLIP Unitrust, that benefits The Nature Conservancy and provides you with income now.
  • You can have the satisfaction of making a significant gift now to The Nature Conservancy without adversely affecting your cash flow.
