Welcome to The Dechomai Foundation
Dechomai [de’-kho-mī] is a Greek word meaning: “to graciously receive.”
Dechomai exists to help other charitable institutions “graciously” receive non-cash donations that the charity might not otherwise be able to accept. We receive these assets, liquidate them for a modest fee (1 to 3%), and then grant the net proceeds to the charity the donor advises. The Dechomai Foundation accepts real estate, limited partnerships, closely-held stock, restricted stock, S-Corp stock, life insurance, notes and all other unusual assets, subject to Board approval.
By allowing charities to refer non-cash donations which they otherwise would have to decline because they either don’t have capacity, expertise or time to process and liquidate them, the Dechomai Foundation achieves its mission by capturing more charitable gifts.
