Make a gift of stock
A gift of stock, or other appreciated property, entitles you to a tax deduction for the market value of the donated stock. If the stock you wish to donate has been held for more than one year, you can avoid capital gains tax on any appreciation of the stock by donating the stock prior to sale. Northeastern University 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.
For specific instructions, go to this page. In addition, please be sure to email us to let us know the company and number of shares being transferred so that we can properly credit and acknowledge you for the gift.
