Yes, We Accept In-Kind Donations at The Angelus
As you might imagine, caring for an average of more than 30 individuals a day in our group homes requires a lot of resources. From home necessities, like toilet paper and cleaning supplies, to items and activities appropriate for our residents, we are always in need of in-kind donations to help offset our costs and provide quality experiences for the individuals in our care.
Are in-Kind donations tax deductible?
Generally a donor may deduct an in-kind (or, non-cash) donation as a charitable contribution. We will provide a written acknowledgement to substantiate the gift, although our acknowledgement cannot assign a dollar value to the donation.
The value of a donation must be determined by the donor; IRS rules require that the receiving nonprofit is not permitted to provide a valuation of the property it receives. Since it is not cash, it can be more difficult to determine the value of a donation. The IRS requires that the donation be priced at its “fair market value.” Tangible goods are fairly easy to value. Some others may require a professional assessment. For example, if someone were to donate a painting, a professional assessment by a third party may be required.
