Make an In-Kind Gift to Universal Chastity Education
Your gift can make a difference! For every $3 UCE spends, one chastity commitment is made. One life is forever changed! To reach one entire school costs only $250. In-kind donations allow UCE to further spread the message of Christ and chastity.
Universal Chastity Education is very grateful to the many donors who contribute in-kind gifts. UCE does have in-kind donation guidelines, and items are subject to refusal. Please contact UCE Executive Director, Andrew Dernovsek, if you have any questions about the acceptability of an item you wish to donate or if you are interested in donating items. All items must be clean, saleable, and in working condition.
Types of In-Kind Gifts:
- Cell phones
- Sporting goods
- Collectibles/art/sports memorabilia
- Medical equipment
- Vehicles (Please see vehicle donation program information)
In general, items with an estimated resale value of $50 can be donated. UCE can arrange for pickup of items, in Colorado, totaling $250 or more. Larger, heavier items should have an estimated resale value of $500. If you have questions, or if you would like to make an in-kind donation please email: email@example.com.
What about a tax deduction?
Charities which are 501(c)3 approved may receive tax deductible donations. This includes in-kind gifts and services. Upon receipt of your donation, you will receive an in-kind donation receipt from UCE. This receipt will not have an estimated value. This is per IRS rules. You must assign a value to the gift when you file your taxes for that year. Items with a value greater than $5,000 may require an appraisal. This is an easy process, and usually costs less than $100. UCE would be happy to guide you in this process if it is needed.
The average nonprofit has administrative costs ranging from 20 – 50%. UCE’s administrative costs last year were 9%. UCE’s fundraising costs last year were 3%. This means that 88% or eighty-eight cents of every dollar goes directly towards chastity programs.
