What are Gifts In-Kind?

  • Someone donates shingles that Habitat Metro Denver would have otherwise had to pay cash for
  • A plumber donates his/her time to install plumbing
  • A donation of land on which to build a home
  • A donation of a home to be renovated
  • A donation of overstock home improvement goods to be sold at our ReStores.

How are Gifts In-Kind valued and accounted for?

  • Donors submit a form listing gifts and their value
  • Donor will receive a thank you letter acknowledging the donation
  • Habitat Metro Denver accounts for Gifts In-Kind in its bookkeeping by assigning a value for what it would have to pay for the materials or labor
  • The donor is responsible for assigning a fair market value to the Gift In-Kind for his or her own tax purposes
