Gift of Securities

Gifts of publicly traded securities that have appreciated in value allow you to avoid capital gains taxes while also receiving a tax deduction for your gift. Plus, you can contribute directly to the annual fund or specify an area that you would like the proceeds to support. The college benefits by selling the stock without paying taxes on the gain, and you benefit from making a contribution that would be larger than what you might have been able to donate in cash.

The following are the DTC instructions for the College for Creative Studies (CCS) for transfer of stock to the college’s broker, Comerica Securities.
