FASB proceeds with guidance on gifts in kind
Abstract: Many nonprofits rely on contributions of nonfinancial assets, such as fixed assets (land, buildings, equipment), services, and materials and supplies. New rules from the FASB are intended to increase transparency around such donations. This article discusses the new standard on handling gifts-in-kind donations, which was released in early 2020 and finalized in June. Key provisions of the standard are highlighted.
