Appreciated Stocks and Securities
By donating appreciated stock, no capital gains tax will be due on the appreciation, and the full value of the stock is immediately designated to a Kettering University capital improvement project, scholarship, program or academic area that is important to you. When you itemize, you can deduct the full value of the stock even though you did not pay capital gains tax on the appreciation. So, if you have the opportunity to choose between making a gift of cash and a gift of appreciated stock, a gift of stock may be a better choice since you will avoid the capital gains tax that would be due if you sold the stock.
Your gift can help build state-of-the art facilities, create a student scholarship to help offset tuition, strengthen our pre-college programs and more. The Kettering University Office of Gift Planning is available to assist you with arranging the transfer to the University that will help smart young people meet their objective for a brighter future—a Kettering degree.
IMPORTANT: The University is working with a new financial services firm. For the new account information, please contact us toll-free at 800-955-4464 or firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can ensure your stock donation is transferred smoothly to the University.
