Gifts of Securities and Stocks
Thank you for considering a gift of appreciated securities or stocks.
Donating long-term appreciated securities can make a big impact for Mount Marty students. Mount Marty benefits by selling the stock without paying taxes on the gain, and you benefit from making a contribution which would be larger than what you might have been able to donate in cash. Additionally, you can specify which fund or area you would like to support, including the MMU Annual Scholarship Fund.
To initiate a transfer of securities held by a brokerage firm or commercial bank, speak with your financial adviser or work directly with the brokerage firm or bank to electronically transfer the securities to the college.
