Assets to Give
The simplest way to support the Met is through cash gifts. But creative gifts of assets can include stocks, bonds, and property (real estate and personal property such as artwork). These can not only provide you with charitable deductions, but can also offer additional tax savings.
Choose the category of assets below that best fits your situation.
- Gifts of Cash, Check, and Credit Cards
A gift of cash is easy to make.
- Gifts of Appreciated Securities
Smart gift planning combines charitable intent with cost-efficient planning techniques.
- Lifetime Gifts of Retirement Plans
Consider retirement-plan benefits for a significant gift to the Met.
- Gifts of Life Insurance Policies
Life insurance may fund a gift or replace the value of a gifted asset.
- Tangible Personal Property
Tangible property contributions provide charitable deductions based on a standard of "related use."
- Gifts of Real Estate
Most kinds of real estate may be donated to the Met.
