New Wealth in Texas: Update on Minerals, Oil & Gas, and Real Estate
April 22, 2013 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm$35 – $40
As drilling technologies have made significant breakthroughs, oil & gas and mineral production has increased dramatically over the past decade, allowing production in states where none existed previously. Approximately twenty states now realize substantial mineral production each year, creating opportunities for philanthropy that were not formerly available. Joe Hancock – representing a foundation with over eighty years of minerals management experience exclusively for nonprofit organizations – will explain gifts of oil and gas interests, minerals, and other real property interests and discuss how to engage prospective donors of these gift types. He will also discuss ongoing management of these assets, address the applicability of partial interest and unrelated business income rules, and clarify environmental and valuation issues.
