Stock

A gift of marketable securities that have been owned for more than one year provide a donor with two tax benefits: a charitable income tax deduction and a waiver of the capital gains tax. For tax purposes, the value of the gift is the mean market value of the securities on the day of the gift. For donors in higher tax brackets, these tax benefits may reduce the out-of-pocket cost of a gift of securities by half. To learn more about making a gift of stock, please click here.

Matching Gifts

Matching gifts can double or triple your gift! If you work for a company that matches charitable gifts, please obtain a matching gift form from your personnel office and send it along with your contribution.
