Gifts of Stock

A gift of stock has many advantages. For stock that has been held over one year and has increased in value, there are two very attractive benefits. You can avoid the capital gains tax and receive a charitable deduction for the full value of the stock if you transfer ownership of the stock to CCU. Do NOT sell the stock. We are then able to liquidate the stock and as a charity exempt from taxes, pay no gain tax on your gift.

Matching Gifts

Multiply Your Impact – If your company offers a matching gift program, you can double or even triple the impact of your gift. Just obtain the necessary form from your employer, complete it, and send it with your gift.

Charitable Gift Annuity

Charitable gift annuities are popular gifting vehicles that allow the donor to use cash or other appreciated assets to increase income while also reducing or eliminating gift, income, and estate taxes. This gift planning option can help meet the needs of those who wish to give, but who want to make certain they have provided for their financial needs and those of their loved ones. Gift annuities have been around since 1843 when the American Bible Society issued its first gift annuity. Basically, a gift annuity is a simple contract between the donor and the University. It does not require complicated documentation, and the amount needed to fund it may be as little as $5,000.
