Additional Ways to Give
Appreciated Securities, Stocks, and Bonds
Consider transferring appreciated securities to make an outright gift or a payment on a pledge and you may be eligible for significant tax advantages. The charitable gift is completed on the date of delivery, which in turn determines both the fair market value and the tax year in which the gift is deductible. Fair market value for publicly traded securities is the mean selling price on the date of delivery of the gift. Due to potential complexities, the University may accept gifts of closely held stock on a case-by-case basis.
We recommend that you consult with one of our Development Team members before securities transactions are initiated. For general questions on giving stock and securities, please contact Jennifer Hall at (603) 535-2219
Gifts of Property
There are many ways to make a gift using real estate, including giving a property to Plymouth State outright, with retained life estate, and other strategies that meet both your and the University’s needs. Plymouth State will consider gifts of real estate and tangible personal property on a case-by-case basis.
