Some potential donors own stocks that may appreciate over the years and are concerned about capital gains tax should they decide to sell. A good alternative to selling the stock, and consequently absorbing the capital gains tax, is to donate shares to UW-Green Bay. It helps donors make a big financial impact on an organization at a relatively low cost after federal taxes have been taken into consideration.
Tax Savings are Two-fold
When transferring stock as a charitable gift to the UW-Green Bay Foundation, the donor pays no capital gains and may receive an income tax deduction for the charitable contribution.
UW-Green Bay welcomes gifts of stocks and securities. For more information on how this type of giving can benefit you and the University, please contact the Advancement Office at 920.465.2074 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
