Gifts of Stock and Securities
Gifts of appreciated securities -- including publicly traded and privately held stock and mutual funds -- offer a two-fold tax savings because the donor is entitled to take a charitable deduction for the full current value of appreciated securities (held longer than one year), and is able to avoid paying the capital gains tax that would be due if the donor sold the securities.
To initiate a transfer of securities held by a brokerage or commercial bank, notify the broker or bank that you intend to electronically transfer the securities to the college. This can often be done online.
IMPORTANT: Please phone or email the college when you intend to transfer securities so that you will receive proper credit for the gift.
