SECURITIES

Many people incorporate charitable giving into their personal (or corporate partnership) income tax planning. The natural result is that most charitable contributions are made toward the end of the year, after one’s income tax picture becomes clearer. Charitable-minded people, who are also tax-conscious, will seek the most efficient way in which to make their contributions. Often, the tax savings resulting from charitable giving enable donors to give more than they might have thought possible.

One fundamental concept in tax planning for charitable contributions is to donate appreciated marketable securities (that have been held by the donor for at least a year), instead of cash. In so doing, the donor will receive an income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the securities. In addition, the donor will avoid paying capital gains tax, should he/she have sold the securities independently. Hence, a double benefit is gained.

In addition to the income tax savings and the avoidance of capital gains tax, the donor also receives the benefit of knowing that his or her contribution is making a lasting impact on current and future Pace Law School students. By investing in the mission of Pace, donors are helping educate the leaders of tomorrow, preparing ethical and skilled decision makers who are motivated to leadership and service. Like few of its peers, Pace serves a significant portion of students who require some form of financial assistance.

  • IMPORTANT: Since most stock transfers do not indicate the donors name and/or contact information, please notify of any stock transfers to Development and Alumni Relations at (914) 422-4072 or at plsalumni@law.pace.edu
