Using Your Business to Further Ministry

Donating business assets to charity is a tax-efficient way to make a difference. Many friends of Focus on the Family are successful business owners. If you are committed to using what God has entrusted you with to further ministry, we can help. Focus on the Family has developed unique partnerships with organizations that specialize in helping business owners make tax-efficient charitable contributions.

Benefits of Gifts of Business Assets / Interests

  • Receive a tax deduction
  • Reduce or eliminate capital gains tax
  • Maximize your charitable contribution

If you are considering donating a portion of your business assets or interests, contact the Planned Giving Team. Your generosity enables us to help families thrive for generations to come.

Why Give Your Business Away Before Selling It

The biggest mistake you can make when selling your business is to sell first, then give a gift.

Many friends of Focus on the Family are successful business owners committed to use all that God has entrusted to them, for furthering gospel ministry. And Focus on the Family has developed some unique partnerships with organizations that specialize in helping business owners use their businesses to fulfill that passion.

If you are thinking about selling your business for a significant gain, we can help ensure that your sale maximizes the benefits to you and the ministry while minimizing your tax liability.

  • Receive tax deduction
  • Reduce or eliminate capital gains tax
  • Maximize charitable giving

A business that is sold may incur a significant tax consequence. The net result will be that giving a portion of your business ahead of the sale will result in a major tax benefit.

Contact us and we would be happy to assist you and answer your questions about making a gift of a business interest prior to the sale of your business.
