Gifts in Kind
MediSend may accept in-kind gifts as charitable contributions. Examples could include equipment, supplies, real estate, art works, books, and furnishings.
Individuals or corporations must communicate and coordinate with MediSend prior to the acceptance of any such in-kind gift and are required to submit a form detailing the donation. The donor must formally transfer ownership of the property to MediSend.
Receipts will be prepared by MediSend and issued to the donor of in-kind gifts. These receipts will not list an amount - it is the donor's responsibility to determine the fair market value of the gift for IRS purposes - but will list a description of the in-kind gift donated. Although the amount is not included on the donor's receipt, the fair market value is recorded on MediSend's financial statements.
Any in-kind gift in excess of $5,000 requires an IRS form 8283 and requires the Foundation's acknowledgment statement verifying the receipt of the donated in-kind gift. An individual who donates an in-kind gift greater than $5,000 must get a qualified appraisal in order to deduct for tax purposes.
MediSend International is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization. We will provide a receipt allowing you to claim a tax deduction as allowed by law. MediSend International does not sell, rent, trade or otherwise disclose donor information to any outside party. Please review our Donor Bill of Rights and FAQ for more information.
