NonCash Charitable Donations

Minnesota State College and University personnel do NOT determine the fair market value of noncash charitable donations for the donor.

It is the donor's responsibility to determine fair market value and not college/university officials.

IRS Form 8283, Noncash Charitable Contributions (.pdf)

This IRS form is the donor's responsibility to complete and file (NOT Minnesota State Colleges and Universities).

However, for certain noncash donations for which the donor's appraised value is in excess of $5,000 the donor may request that a college/university official complete Part IV of Form 8283. Form 8283, Part IV (this part only) can be completed by a college/university official authorized to sign for the institution. The signature of the donee in Part IV does not represent concurrence with the appraised value listed by the donor on Form 8283. Rather, it represents acknowledgment of receipt of the property described in the appraisal summary (Section B, Form 8283) on the date specified in the appraisal summary and that the donee understands the information reporting requirements imposed by section 6050L and Federal Regulation 1.6050L-1. Also, see Form 8282 .pdf) and instructions.
