Appreciated Securities

A creative way to help students and advance the mission of Olivet Nazarene University is to donate a security, such as property or stocks, to Olivet. This can provide you with significant tax benefits.

An alternative to cash

Save on taxes in two ways

Giving appreciated securities such as property, stocks, etc. is a popular alternative to cash gifts because it allows you to save on taxes in two different ways at the same time. The first tax benefit comes when you receive an income tax deduction for the total market worth of your securities. The second benefit comes from the savings on the appreciated capital gains tax.

Getting Started

Giving through appreciated securities

Capital gains taxes are assessed in various ways, including the length of time held. Because of this, it is very important that you carefully select the right asset when you are considering charitable gifts of securities and other assets.
