What do in-kind donations to the CARF Foundation consist of?

Donations in kind are those in which instead of contributing a sum of money or an inheritance or testamentary legacy, the donor or benefactor makes a contribution of contribution of material goods of a certain value. 

In most situations these are assets that are valuable and that the donor already understands that they will not use or do not need on a day-to-day basis for whatever reason. 

Therefore, the donor considers that they will be of greater use if they are contributed to support a noble cause such as that of the CARF Foundation; and decides to donate them to support the integral formation of vocations priests and religious. 

After an initial evaluation of the goods by the CARF Foundation to see if an objective benefit can be obtained from the in-kind donation, they are collected from the benefactor's home, and these goods will subsequently receive a professional appraisal of a Monte de Piedad. 

Once they have been auctioned by a reputable auction house, the proceeds will be used to support vocations for priests and religious, tax deductible in the tax declaration made by the benefactor of the CARF Foundation.

Your donation in kind enjoys tax incentives. The objective of the Patronage Law is to encourage private efforts in activities of general interest in a direct and effective way, and therefore establishes incentives for donors. As soon as the value of the good is clear (its value in the accounting or according to Patrimony), we will issue the corresponding certificate that will allow you to obtain the same benefits.
