Donating land to charity
By Alexandra Bruell Alexandra Bruell The Wall Street Journal BiographyAlexandra Bruell @alexbruell [email protected] April 10, 2018 7:30 a.m. ET 0 COMMENTS A startup called Givewith has a pitch for advertisers looking to appeal to socially conscious consumers and boost their sales at a time when audiences are increasingly dodging marketing pitches. Givewith is introducing a new product designed to make it easier for a company to donate to nonprofits as part of its digital ad buys and measure the impact of the company’s charitable giving on its performance. Givewith’s technology automatically triggers a donation to a chosen nonprofit every time someone clicks or views a digital ad. The theory is that associating a brand’s advertisement with a donation to a nonprofit will resonate more with consumers, encouraging them to engage with the ad and creating a positive association that can drive brand loyalty or increased spending. Givewith, which is … [Read more...] about CBS-Backed Startup to Help Advertisers Donate to Charities Through Digital Ad Buys

Many questions have been raised about the charitable contributions of the Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump. His foundation, the Donald J. Trump Foundation, has given away $13.6 million in the last 28 years according to tax returns reviewed by CBS News. However, only $4.9 million of it has been money from Trump's own pocket. Trump has not personally donated to his foundation since 2008. At least seven times over the last 27 years, Trump has said he gave away the proceeds from his best-selling books to charity, starting with the 1987 best-seller, "The Art of the Deal." The Trump campaign did not respond to repeated requests for information about charitable donations from the royalties of Trump's books. "The Art of the Deal" -- 1987 In 1989, Trump told CBS News reporter Erin Moriarty on camera, "That's why I write books ... because the money always goes to charity and that's my pleasure." "The Art of the Deal" sold 1.1 million copies, according to a source familiar with … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Donald Trump book royalties to charity? A mixed bag
Last Updated Aug 17, 2009 1:28 PM EDT A recent article about real-estate donations in the Chronicle of Philanthropy (subscription required) advises charities to be extra careful when accepting donations of property, because in this lousy market, real estate can be more work than it's worth. However, the article notes that 2 to 3 percent of all charitable donations involve property -- and many of those are win-win. So what guidelines should you follow if you want to donate? Do: Consult with a financial planner to gain the maximum tax benefit. The boom-time wisdom was to give appreciated real estate straight to charity -- as opposed to selling it and giving the charity the proceeds -- because that way you avoided paying capital gains taxes. In today's market, however, many properties may have dropped in value. Check with your financial planner before you try to avoid taxes that may be nonexistent in the first place. Work with the charity to set up the property's final use. Earlier this … [Read more...] about Donating Property to Charity: Dos and Don’ts
In its second year, the Dominion Energy Charity Classic raised more than $400,000 for charities in the Richmond region, an increase over 2017's giving of $250,000. Dominion chairman Thomas F. Farrell, II, was on hand for the announcement Wednesday morning at the Country Club of Virginia. He said the reason Dominion helped bring the tournament to Richmond was because of the strong charitable component. This year's tournament will take place from Oct. 18-21, and will once again be a part of the PGA Tour Champions' Charles Schwab Cup playoffs. Farrell said that Dominion has set a goal of increasing charitable giving from the tournament to $1 million per year. To that end, the tournament will continue its Birdies for Charity program, where donations can be made that are tied to the number of birdies golfers make during the tournament. Other dignitaries on hand Wednesday included representatives from various charities, Henrico Country and the PGA Tour Champions. They saluted the event, … [Read more...] about Dominion golf tournament donates $400,000 to charity, sets higher goal for 2019

Published 9:24 am, Friday, January 19, 2018 The Greater Houston Builders Association's charity fundraiser, the Benefit Homes Project, has been working with Houston's home builders, developers, trades, suppliers and vendors for 38 years to raise funds for local charities, and there have been many outstanding milestones during this time. Records continue to be broken by many of these builders who recruit a growing list of vendors to donate materials and labor for construction of their Benefit home. Sales continue to climb, and several Benefit Homes Project builders have donated construction management multiple times. One huge achievement stands out. Since 1998, Land Tejas has donated 15 lots to the Benefit Homes Project. From the first lot in its Canyon Gate community of Northpointe, to the most recent donated lot in its new community of Lago Mar, Land Tejas has been a constant within the Benefit Homes team. These lot donations have an estimated total value of $1,080,000. … [Read more...] about Land Tejas offers record dollars in lot donations for GHBA charity project

A Bee editorial (Jan. 5), and article (Dan Walters, Jan. 8) correctly describe the effort to circumvent Trump’s screwing of California taxpayers by allowing them to treat their state taxes as charitable contributions, as having a snowball’s chance in hell. But why? Deductions are allowed for contributions to foreign “charities,” and how do they benefit our society? These deductions were approved due to pressure from the Israel First lobby. Nearly all of these deductions (more than 95 percent) are claimed by those making donations to Israeli “charities.” Most of these “charitable” donations go to help subsidize illegal “settlements” (a benign word for outright thievery of another people’s land and resources) in illegally occupied Palestinian territory. This is in contravention of international law and long standing US policy. So, taxpayers, ask yourselves why the Kushner family foundation, along with others, derive tax … [Read more...] about Donations to help Israel OK, but California, no?
