Donation Acceptance Agreement

A carefully crafted donation agreement can achieve this; He can ensure that there is a meeting between a donor and a beneficiary about the amount and timing of the donation and other important issues that may need to be addressed in order to ensure a satisfactory experience for both parties. The landowner may also have tax, estate or land use planning goals. The donation agreement gives both parties the opportunity to discuss these goals, the extent to which the Organization is committed to promoting these goals, and under what circumstances the landowner may withdraw if it is not achieved. Some potential donors are unwilling or unable to afford to fund easement liability or sustainably reduce their real estate value without a federal income tax deduction being available. The gift agreement allows them to negotiate withdrawal rights if they are not satisfied with the future tax benefit estimated by their tax advisors and appraisers. . . .
