Outright Gifts can be made in variety of ways:
Gifts of Cash
Gift of cash are usually made in the form of a check and made payable to the SU Foundation. Donors may receive tax benefits if they itemize deductions.
Many donors may realize substantial tax advantages by transferring gifts of appreciated stock. Capital gains taxation on the amount of appreciation is avoided, and the donor receives a tax deduction for the stock’s full market value.
A gift of real estate can be an advantageous way of making sizeable gifts to the SU Foundation while allowing the donor to realize a tax deduction and avoid possible capital gains tax. In the case of residences, you may retain lifetime occupancy if you wish.
