Gifts in Kind
A wide range of non-cash gifts, such as books, real estate, artwork, special equipment and other tangible personal property, are commonly referred to as gifts in kind.
A donor may make a gift of tangible property to Luther College. Typical gifts in kind include: land, buildings or other assets such as artwork, books, equipment, furnishings, etc. These gifts must be pre-arranged with Luther College. Such gifts are appraised on the date received and an official tax receipt is issued for the appraised value. The donor will receive a receipt for the fair market value of the property. A professional appraisal may be required.
The following types of property require special consideration and consultation with the Luther College to ensure that they support our academic programs and priorities:
