Gifts of long-term appreciated securities (securities held 12 months or more) have been considered the “best value” in charitable giving.  Making such a gift to the Stout University Foundation not only provides a tax deductible gift equal to the fair market value of the securities donated, but also allows you to avoid capital gains tax on the increase in value of those securities.

To make a gift of stock/securities by an electronic stock transfer, please follow the steps in the attached form.  If you have stock certificates, please call David Wiensch, Associate Director of University Advancement, Stout University Foundation, Inc. at 715-232-1151.
