Gifts of tangible goods and property, including real estate, may be accepted depending on the nature and utility of the items. Donor must provide fair market value based on IRS valuation rules and procedures.

Stocks & Securities
Gifts of stocks and other securities are welcome. Gifts of appreciated securities may completely avoid capital gains taxes. Donors receive credit based on the fair market value of the securities donated. For small annual gifts or gifts to satisfy a large pledge, stock is often the asset that makes the most sense for donors.
