If you own securities that have appreciated in value over time, you may owe a substantial
capital gains tax if you sell them. But, if you use such assets to fund a charitable
gift, you may completely avoid the capital gains tax while enjoying a federal income
tax deduction for the full value of the securities. For maximum tax benefits, it
is usually best to give securities that have increased in value the most since you
have owned them. It is also possible to make a gift with appreciated securities in
a mutual fund. For information on donating securities, please call Bobby Prince in
the Development Office at 901-678-1335.
You can leave a lasting legacy for the University of Memphis through a will, living
trust or retirement plan. The process is very simple and your gift benefits the University
for generations to come. For information about planned gifts, please call Dan Murrell
at 901.678.2732 or click here.
Employer Matching Gifts
Many companies encourage their employees to make charitable contributions by matching
their philanthropic support. At the University, donors receive credit for their employers'
matching gifts. To find out if you work for a company that matches gifts, visit www.matchinggifts.com/memphis. You may also consult your human resources office, which will provide you with a
matching gift form.
