During these times we need to take bold steps with research-investment and be able to visualize the future of kenaf as a thriving industry in the USA. With so many benefits to healthy environments, farmers, communities, entrepreneurs, existing businesses and investors, research and development are at the forefront of successful trends.
When it comes to research-investment, development is often assumed, and that is how we like to look at it too! We come to the table with the attitude "we see how we will get the intended results". We can see this because we start out with known scientific discoveries that are consistent and predictable.
From this starting point we can then decide how we can apply this data to create electrical energy and store it using kenaf as a resource for example.
Next we set our criteria as an ideal scene i.e easy, fast manufacturing, inexpensive, competitive and superior performance compared to similar products in demand. Once we have met this criteria and demonstrated how it can be done, we package it up and make it available for others to follow step by step instructions on how to produce the same results. Onsite training and internships.
Our research and development partners are involved with the creation of new products that stay in demand and in use for generations to come, where multiple returns for the investor can be realized.
This is a photo of a hempcrete home that could be built with kenafcrete and bamboo.
We set our priorities based on preserving and reclaiming natural resources that benefit water, soil, trees, people and animals by using kenaf as a rotational cash crop on existing farmland and using kenaf as a better alternative resource to fossil fuels, reducing pollution on land, manufacturing processes and the logging of trees etc.
These priorities can be met while utilizing kenaf for food, fodder, healthy water, healthy soil, regenerative housing, electrical energy generation and storage, as well as transportation using bio-diesel or electric energy.
With these things in mind we can serve industries that make paper, plastic composites, particle board, wood pellets, textiles, animal feed and bedding, grow mats and erosion control, residential housing, solar electric panels, batteries, automotive panels, sound proof panels, clothing and more.
We can envision doing this while:
In the US today research-investment focus is changing with the challenges we are facing. One of these challenges is a majority of commercial farmers are retiring and most of them report that thier children will not be taking over the farm. This is an opportunity to salvage these farmlands and provide beneficial options for farmers and their families.
Climate change is also one of these challenges that we all face. Sequestering CO2 is in the forefront of solutions being presented around the globe, and kenaf can play a major role in addressing both of these challenges. The US kenaf industry needs research-investment to setup the infrastructure and discover the successful actions that can be applied on a broader scale.
Another challenge is realestate in the form of commercial properties, residential properties and land of all types, that are burdensome or not being used to benefit the property owner, the environment or others.
Looking at these 3 challenges and finding the experts to work with that address all 3 challenges with even more far reaching effects, is now available. Our research with Kenaf Partners USA continues with our processing facility and demonstration showroom.
If you would like to support this activity you can do so now by personal charitable giving of realestate or letting others know that there is a mutual benefit that can be realized by doing so. Get an overview of how this works and the easy way to get started below.

TURNING YOUR DEED INTO A GOOD DEED!
WHY GIVE REAL ESTATE?
When considering a gift to support PFANA or a Nonprofit of your choice many people overlook a valuable portion of their assets — REAL ESTATE!
Donating property to PFANA and/or a Nonprofit of your choice can provide important tax dvantages while eliminating the responsibility of property management. As with donations of appreciated stock, donating appreciated property allows you to minimize or avoid capital-gains taxes that you would incur if you sold the property.
Donating your property to PFANA also saves you the expense and headache of marketing and selling your real estate. Depending on the specific gift arrangement that works best for you, you may also benefit from a significant charitable income-tax deduction, a lifetime income stream, cash back from the gift transaction, or even retaining the right to continue living in a property you donate.
There are a variety of ways to structure your gift of real estate, as outlined in this brochure. The planned giving professionals at PFANA are available to meet with you and your advisors to help you determine the best solution to meet your needs. However your gift is structured, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that your gift will have a lasting impact on PFANA’s national grassroots movement and University.
Remember: If you have an interest in supporting another Nonprofit in addition to PFANA through a single donation, we can facilitate that, as well.
PFANA’s curriculum offers innovative solution-oriented courses which covers a broad spectrum. Our leadership and unique programs are helping to shape America’s future with top experts and professionals.
PFANA’s focus gives their enrollees real tools to conquer the world by funding opportunities via the power of grant money, charitable giving of real estate, and much more.

MAKE YOUR MARK AND LEAVE A LEGACY
“If given the opportunity, most of us would like to leave the world a better place than we found it.” A gift of real estate can be the ideal vehicle for making this possible. Your gift can create a far-reaching legacy for generations to come.
PFANA’s real estate program offers you the opportunity to make a significant difference whether your philanthropic passion is in music, arts, media, legislative & advocacy, wellness, new technology, new economy, youth education, charitable giving of real estate (CGRE), and veteran’s affairs, among many others.
PFANA’s capable development team is committed to working closely with each individual donor to tailor a gift arrangement that best suits his or her circumstances and to identify a personal legacy at PFANA that advances her or his philanthropic goals.

TYPES OF PROPERTY ACCEPTED
Any type of real estate you own can become a gift to support causes that you believe in.
Vacation Homes, We accept single family homes, multifamily homes, and condominiums. If you are considering selling or disposing of a residence, check with PFANA first to see how we can help.
When the hassle of upkeep turns your vacation home into a chore, we can help. We work with gifts of cabins, condominiums, travel motor coaches, yachts, or any other type of vacation property you may own. (Excluding time shares) Investment Property.
You may have invested in residential, rental, or commercial property to provide supplemental income. Over time, finding renters, paying taxes and property maintenance may be more work than you are willing or able to do. If you use this property to fund a charitable remainder unitrust, you can receive an income stream for life while avoiding the hassle of property ownership. At the end of the trust, your gift will make a significant difference.
Your company can benefit from a charitable donation to PFANA or a Nonprofit of your choice. We can find creative solutions to the problem of corporate surplus property, as well as charitable uses for apartment and office buildings, retail centers, medical offices, and many other types of commercial property.
You may be paying taxes on vacant property that you have decided not to develop. Consider donating it to benefit PFANA or a Nonprofit of your choice. You can give this land outright, sell it in a bargain sale, put it in a trust, or leave it to your designated Nonprofit in your will.
Whether it is the family farm, mineral rights, or timber land, we can use your income–producing property to craft a gift arrangement that could provide you with income as well as an income tax deduction, while also freeing you from the work of managing the property.
Do you or your company own property in another country? We may be able to facilitate gifts of real estate in other countries. Please contact us regarding your specific situation.
WAYS TO GIVE REAL ESTATE
The simplest way to donate real estate is through an outright donation. By entering into an agreement to give all or a portion of your real estate to PFANA and/or a Nonprofit of your choice, you will maximize your support and may be eligible for an income tax deduction equal to the full appraised value of your real estate.
In a bargain sale, you sell your property to PFANA at a price below its appraised fair-market value. PFANA will pay you the reduced price, and the remainder of the appraised value becomes a taxdeductible donation.
You can benefit PFANA simply by including a bequest intention of any property in your will. The bequest may be either unrestricted or, in consultation with PFANA, designated to a Nonprofit of your choice. If you like, you may choose to donate a portion of your real estate to PFANA and share the gift among other Nonprofits or individuals of your choice.
PFANA can provide you with sample bequest language to share with your legal advisor.
Life Income Gifts – (CRT - Outright or Bequest)
Through a charitable remainder trust or a charitable gift annuity, you can turn your real estate into a reliable income stream. In exchange for your property, PFANA will agree to pay you and a spouse or other loved ones a steady income for the remainder of your life/their lives. In addition to lifetime income, you are eligible to take a charitable deduction for a significant portion of the gift.
Retained Life Estate
This option allows you to donate your property while continuing to enjoy its use for as long as you wish. When you give your home to PFANA and/or a Nonprofit of your choice, subject to a “retained life estate,” you may continue to live there for the remainder of your life, or the life of your spouse. You are eligible to take an immediate income tax deduction for a portion of the value of your home. You can use a primary residence, second home, farm, or any asset you use as a personal residence for a retained life estate.
Now you have the fundamental information on the amazing opportunities that Charitable Giving Of Real Estate provides. We look forward to speaking with you about your specific needs!
