Certain forms of gifts or donated properties may be subject to review prior to acceptance.
Examples of gifts subject to prior review include, but are not limited to:
Tangible Personal Property--The Board of Directors shall review and determine whether to accept any gifts of tangible personal property in light of the following considerations: does the property further the organization’s mission? Is the property marketable? Are there any unacceptable restrictions imposed on the property? Are there any carrying costs for the property for which the organization may be responsible? Is the title/provenance of the property clear?
Life Insurance--Painted Rain Ranch Animal Sanctuary will accept gifts of life insurance where Painted Rain Ranch Animal Sanctuary is named as both beneficiary and irrevocable owner of the insurance policy.

Prior to acceptance of any gift of real estate other than a personal residence, Painted Rain Ranch Animal Sanctuary shall require an initial environmental review by a qualified environmental firm. In the event that the initial review reveals a potential problem, the organization may retain a qualified environmental firm to conduct an environmental audit. Criteria for acceptance of gifts of real estate include: Is the property useful for the organization’s purposes? Is the property readily marketable? Are there covenants, conditions, restrictions, reservations, easements, encumbrances or other limitations associated with the property? Are there carrying costs (including insurance, property taxes, mortgages, notes, or the like) or maintenance expenses associated with the property? Does the environmental review or audit reflect that the property is damaged or otherwise requires remediation?
Use of Legal Counsel-- Painted Rain Ranch Animal Sanctuary will seek the advice of legal counsel in matters relating to acceptance of gifts when appropriate. Review by counsel is recommended for:

All files will be made available to the Internal Revenue Service (the “IRS”) if required or advisable with respect to any IRS audit.
