Next to cash, appreciated stocks and bonds are the assets most frequently donated to Pittsburgh Seminary. Making a gift of securities is both simple and tax advantageous. With a gift of appreciated securities, you are entitled to a federal income tax charitable deduction if you itemize your return. For appreciated securities held longer than one year, you may deduct the full fair market value of your gift. A second tax benefit with a gift of appreciated securities is that you avoid paying any capital gains tax on your investment.
Your gift of appreciated securities may be donated by mail or in person. Please provide this transfer instruction form to your bank/broker. Please call Tom Pappalardo at 412-924-1378 for more information or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
