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 visit our planned giving website HERE. For a simple form to request or update information, 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 Matching Gifts. You may also consult your human resources office, which will provide you with a matching gift form.
