Session Tracks:

Many not-for-profit organizations rely on split-interest agreements, also known as planned giving, to support their long-term missions. Would you know a split interest agreement if you saw it? Would you know how to account for it? This session will cover accounting for the various types of split interest agreements, including charitable lead trusts, charitable gift annuities, pooled income funds, and gifts of real estate with a retained interest. Through various examples of these types of gifts, we will cover the GAAP requirements for initial recognition (including what assumptions and estimates to use), subsequent re-measurement, and financial statement presentation and disclosure. We will explore best practices for controls surrounding identifying, tracking, and recording such agreements.

  • Understand types of split-interest agreements and the related accounting
