Gifts of Securities

Tax Benefits
Your gift may provide you with Federal and State income tax benefits. If you itemize deductions on your federal income tax return, you may be able to deduct your contribution to the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan from your adjusted gross income. In addition, gifts of appreciated securities avoid long-term capital gains tax. Check with your tax advisor for deduction and capital gains tax requirements and limitations for your situation.

The value of your securities gift will be the average of the high and low trading prices on the official date of your gift. The date of the gift is the day the University assumes ownership of the security.
