In Kind Donations

What Is a In-Kind Donation?

An in-kind donation is a non-cash donation to a 501(c)(3) charity. People can make two different types of contributions to a 501(c)(3) charity: cash donations or in-kind donations. A cash donation is a transfer of funds to the organization. An in-kind contribution includes all other types of donations.

When a nonprofit organization receives an in-kind contribution, the charity records the gift as revenue. To determine the amount of revenue, the charity must value the in-kind contribution at its fair market value on the date of the donation.


Types of In-Kind Contributions

In-kind donations include goods or services, other than cash transfers. For example, in-kind donations include products such as computers, furniture, clothing, or office equipment. Services include donating meeting space, transportation, copying services, or administrative services.

You can also donate expertise to a charity, such as providing legal or accounting services. Finally, you can give cash equivalents, such as stocks or bonds. All of these gifts constitute in-kind contributions.


Taxability of In-Kind Contributions

For individuals making in-kind contributions, donors can take a tax deduction for the fair market value of the donation. However, donors cannot deduct for any time or services contributed to a 501(c)(3) organization. The donor can only deduct the cost of any out-of-pocket expenses for which the donor has receipts.

The charity cannot provide the donor with the fair market value of the in-kind donation. Determining the value of the donation is the responsibility of the donor.
