Cash gifts are a popular way to support a nonprofit, and are gifts made by cash, check, credit card, or electronic payment.
A pledged gift is a promised exchange of money or goods from a donor to TYM over a period of time, usually three to five years.
Non-monetary assets or property, where the donor has agreed that the asset should be converted to cash, for benefit of TYM. They include: stocks and securities; real estate; and other items requiring more than nominal effort to convert into cash.
A subset of Non-Cash Gifts, are assets or property that are used as presented. Specifically, these gifts could include musical instruments, equipment and supplies, computer hardware and software, vehicles, and any material that TYM would otherwise need to purchase.
Bequests are gifts made through a donor’s will, living trust, or estate plan. Deferred gifts are gifts conveyed to TYM at some later date or in such a way that the donor receives lifetime income such as charitable gift annuities or remainder trusts.
