Smart Ways to Give
Every year, about 80% of our charitable gifts are made with cash; the remaining 20% is made up of all sorts of non-cash assets. But, nearly 93% of what we own are non-cash assets and the other 7% is cash. There are some stop and think gifts people are giving, from their attic to the basement and from sea to shining sea. When people are able to give what they purposed in their hearts to give in a stop and think way, they often have more cash leftover to decide how to use.
