Gifts of Securities

You can make a healthy investment and reduce your taxes by donating shares to the University Hospital Foundation. Contact us to learn more or speak to your financial advisor.

Gifts of Securities

When you make a gift of securities – like stocks, mutual funds, flow-through shares or bonds – to the University Hospital Foundation, you’re saving lives in a way that has immediate impact. Eliminate the capital gains tax that you’d have to pay if you sold the securities and then donated the proceeds, plus receive a charitable tax receipt for your donation. You can give now, or as part of your estate planning. 

Consult your financial advisor to decide which investments make the most financial and philanthropic impact. Then ask your broker to transfer your securities to the University Hospital Foundation by completing the appropriate transfer form. And finally, get in touch and let us know you have made a planned gift so that we can show our gratitude.
