Infographic: Gratitude, Revisited

The need for gift acceptance policies

American individuals, families and corporations are more generous than ever before, as charitable donations to a variety of organizations hit an all-time record in 2015. But not all of this generosity takes the form of cash: Corporate stock, land, real estate, household items and more are often donated. Organizations should be ready to review these non-cash gifts as they come in. To ease and standardize this process, every organization should establish ground rules with a gift acceptance policy.
