Gifts of Securities

St. Cloud State University students collaborate on campus

Gifts of securities can mean significant tax benefits for donors. For example, contributions of appreciated securities held for over a year are generally deductible at market value, regardless of what the donor paid for them. The capital gains tax is avoided through such a gift as well. You are welcome to reach out to Marc Vaillancourt, Associate Vice President for Philanthropy, at (320) 308-3716 or to discuss your gift.

To Make a Gift of Securities

To notify St. Cloud State of a gift of securities, please contact Connie Robinson, Director of Finance, with complete donor information (name, address, phone number), the name and type of securities to be gifted (public, mutual fund, etc.), the number of shares, and the date you intend to make the gift.
