Make a gift of stock

Gifts of publicly traded stock allow you to claim a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the securities on the date the gift is made. Additionally, donors pay no capital gains tax on any appreciation in the value of the securities since they were acquired. Securities may be electronically transferred to the School by contacting your broker. Consult your tax advisor for detailed information.

  • A current charitable income tax deduction
  • Protection of capital gain in appreciated property used to make your gift
  • A reduction in estate and inheritance taxes
