Crops and Livestock

Cultivate ministry impact with crops and livestock.

If you’re a producer or farmer of agricultural goods, such as crops or livestock, and you desire to make an impact with your resources, consider donating these commodities directly to support your favorite ministries and missionaries. This allows you to make a charitable contribution before the products are realized as taxable income, providing federal and state income tax savings and self-employment tax savings.

Producers should consult their tax advisors to determine if contributing commodities is appropriate for their individual situations.

“My brother and I work alongside each other in our family business and since he is a CPA, he knows how to help maximize our tax-wise giving to the ministry through our gifts of crops instead of sending cash.  


It means more to our family’s generosity story, and to our legacy of stewardship and sustainability to give some of our crops outright from the labor of our hands.  That just feels and practically works better than sending a check.”
