Your Goal:

You wish to avoid being taxed on your capital gains.

How to Make the Gift:

Transfer ownership of long-term appreciated stocks or other securities to Hilbert College.

Your Benefits:

The great benefits of supporting Hilbert College with a gift of appreciated securities include an immediate charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of the gifted securities (at the date of sale) and the elimination of capital gains tax that would ordinarily become due if you had sold the appreciated securities and donated the proceeds from the sale. You may claim your charitable deduction against up to 30% of your adjusted gross income. Any unused deductions can be carried over for the next five consecutive years.
