Outright Gift of Appreciated Securities
Making a gift of securities or mutual funds to us offers you the chance to support HSU while realizing important benefits for yourself.
When you donate appreciated securities or mutual funds you have held more than one year to HSU in support of our mission, of providing an education enlightened by faith, you can reduce or even eliminate federal capital gains taxes on the transfer. You may also be entitled to a federal income tax charitable deduction based on the fair market value of the securities at the time of the transfer.
Securities are most often used to support our work in the form of:
An outright gift. When you donate securities to HSU, you receive the same income tax savings that you would if you wrote us a check, but with the added benefit of eliminating capital gains taxes on the transfer, which can be as high as 20 percent.
A transfer on death (TOD) account.* By placing a TOD designation on your brokerage or investment account, that account will be paid over to one or more persons or charities after your lifetime.
