Gifts-in-Kind Donations

Gifts-in-Kind donations are non-monetary items or materials of tangible personal property that can help further the work and global impact of Moody Bible Institute.

Info - Gift in Kind Donations

Examples include:

  • real estate
  • art objects
  • jewelry
  • coins
  • antiques / collectibles
  • automobiles
  • products / supplies
  • computer hardware and software

How it Works

  1. You donate your Gifts-in-Kind.
    All Gifts-in-Kind donations to Moody must be approved by our Gifts Acceptance Committee.
  2. Moody uses your gift-or sells your gift and uses the proceeds-to support its ministries.
    Upon receiving approved Gifts-in-Kind, the Stewardship office will issue a receipt identifying the date of receipt and acknowledging that the described Gift-in-Kind has been received.

Determining Gifts-in-Kind Value

Moody does not identify a value for the Gifts-in-Kind on the receipt. The donor is responsible for acquiring the fair market value applicable at the time of the gift.

For Gifts-in-Kind that are valued by the donor at more than $5,000, the IRS requires that a fair market value appraisal be obtained by the donor. The qualified appraiser must also sign IRS form 8283 for the donation, and the form 8283 should be submitted to Moody at the time of donation.

Please contact a tax accountant to inquire about how Gifts-in-Kind donations may benefit you in your individual tax situation.
