Acceptance of any contribution, gift or grant is at the discretion of the Ladles of Love. The Ladles of Love will not accept any gift unless it can be used or expended consistently with the purpose and mission of the Ladles of Love. No irrevocable gift, whether outright or life-income in character, will be accepted if under any reasonable set of circumstances the gift would jeopardize the donor’s financial security.
Ladles of Love will refrain from providing advice about the tax or other treatment of gifts and will encourage donors to seek guidance from their own professional advisers to assist them in the process of making their donation. Ladles of Love will accept donations of cash or publicly traded securities. Gifts of in-kind services will be accepted at the discretion of Ladles of Love.
Certain other gifts, real property, personal property, in-kind gifts, non-liquid securities, and contributions whose sources are not transparent or whose use is restricted in some manner, must be reviewed prior to acceptance due to the special obligations raised or liabilities they may pose for Ladles of Love.
Ladles of Love will provide acknowledgments to donors meeting tax requirements for property received by the charity as a gift. However, except for gifts of cash and publicly traded securities, no value shall be ascribed to any receipt or other form of substantiation of a gift received by Ladles of Love.
Ladles of Love will respect the intent of the donor relating to gifts for restricted purposes and those relating to the desire to remain anonymous. With respect to anonymous gifts, Ladles of Love will restrict information about the donor to only those staff members with a need to know.
Ladles of Love will not compensate, whether through commissions, finders' fees, or other means, any third party for directing a gift or a donor to Ladles of Love.
