A gift of artwork, coins, antiques, or other personal property can be an excellent way to support AFP.

A gift of personal property may be right for you if:

  • You own artwork, antiques, or a collection of value that you no longer want.
  • You own other personal property that would be useful to us.
  • You would like to make a gift to AFP.

 

Personal Property

How It Works
You give your personal property to AFP. Either we put your property to a use related to our mission, or we sell your property and use the proceeds.

Gifts of artwork, coins, and other collectibles 
You can use artwork, coins, and other collectibles to make a generous gift to AFP. Depending on the property you give us, we may either keep your property and use it for our charitable purposes or sell it and use the proceeds.

Gifts of other personal property 
You may own equipment, supplies, or other personal property that you no longer need and would be useful to us. Please discuss these items with us prior to your donation to determine which ones we will be able to put to productive use.

Relieve yourself of responsibility 
Maintaining valuable collectibles, such as works of art or antiques, can be a big responsibility. By giving your collectible to AFP, you will no longer be responsible for keeping it secure, preventing its deterioration, or paying to insure it against damage or loss. If you are in this situation, consider making a gift of the item or items to us.

You may also save estate taxes, as once you give your collectible or other personal property to AFP the property will no longer be part of your estate.

Consult with us before making your gift
It is important that you discuss with us the personal property you are considering for donation before you make your gift. We want to be sure that we can accept the property you have in mind.

Also, we will want to discuss with you what will happen to your property once we receive it. We want to be sure we will be able to carry out your wishes.
