Gifts of Securities

Appreciated stocks and bonds are, next to cash, the most popular assets donated to California Lutheran University by alumni and friends.

Why? Because giving appreciated stocks or bonds may be more favorable than a cash donation:

  • If you file an itemized tax return, you are entitled to a federal income tax charitable deduction. Many state income tax laws also allow for a charitable deduction.
  • If the donated securities have been held long-term (12 months or longer), you may claim a deduction for their full fair market value.
  • When appreciated securities are donated, you avoid paying tax on capital gain.

Always discuss donation options with your tax consultant to maximize your benefits. You can notify us of your intention to transfer shares by printing this DTC Instruction Form and faxing it to us at (805) 493-3831. If you have any questions, please contact us at (805) 493-3837.
