Charities today are offered a wide variety of complex assets to fund both outright and life income gifts, including real estate, closely-held business interests, and tangible personal property. While gifts of complex assets are often of significant size, they can be difficult to analyze and present risks that must be understood and effectively managed. This session will present a framework for assessing gifts of complex assets and examine some of the various issues that come up in the planning and gift execution process.
