While many donors commonly make gifts of cash, for some it may be more advantageous to contribute gifts of long-term appreciated securities to support the educational goals of UL.
Advantages of Gifts of Securities
- You receive an income tax deduction based on the market value of the security at the time of the gift.
- You avoid capital gains tax on the appreciated value of the securities.
- You can direct your gift for any purpose at UL.
- You can fund a life income gift and potentially receive a greater income.
