Donations of Securities
Under current tax law, donors may receive attractive tax treatment by contributing appreciated securities held for more than one year. You may donate stocks, bonds, and mutual fund shares; in some instances, tax benefits may apply also to gifts of restricted securities, control securities, and closely held securities.
Please do not instruct your bank or broker to sell the securities and forward the proceeds to The Magdalene College Foundation. This transaction would represent a cash contribution, and you might be liable for capital gains tax.
In compliance with IRS regulations, the Board of Directors of The Magdalene College Foundation maintains complete discretion over the allocation of gifts to Magdalene. However, the Board of Directors will take into consideration any specific areas which you may wish to support. Untargeted gifts will be treated as gifts to 'General Purposes', to be disbursed to the area of greatest need.
Please contact the Alumni and Development Office for further assistance in completing the necessary arrangements.
