In regards to any type of acceptance of any contribution, gift or grant is at the discretion of the Fitzgerald Family Foundation. The Fitzgerald Family Foundation will not accept any gift unless it can be used or expended consistently with the purpose and mission of the Fitzgerald Family Foundation. 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. The Fitzgerald Family Foundation 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. The Fitzgerald Family Foundation will accept donations of cash or publicly traded securities. Gifts of in-kind services will be accepted at the discretion of the Fitzgerald Family Foundation as a donation. The Fitzgerald Family Foundation 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 Fitzgerald Family Foundation. 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 Fitzgerald Family Foundation. The Fitzgerald Family Foundation 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, the Fitzgerald Family Foundation will restrict information about the donor to only those staff members with a need to know. The Fitzgerald Family Foundation will not compensate, whether through commissions, finders’ fees, or other means, any third party for directing a gift or a donor to the Fitzgerald Family Foundation.
