  • Gifts of Stock/Securities

    Gifts of stock or appreciated securities is a popular method to make a gift to The Weiss School. Capital gains taxes are reduced or eliminated when you give securities that have increased in value and have been held for more than one year and a day. For investments that have decreased in value, you benefit from a capital loss deduction and tax deduction if you first sell the stock and then donate the cash proceeds to The Weiss School. Giving securities may allow you to make a larger gift without affecting your cash flow and you will also avoid capital gains tax on appreciated securities.

    Please consult with your tax/financial advisor about the tax implications prior to making a gift of stock or securities.
