Donating stock or mutual funds is an extremely tax-beneficial way to make a gift to Georgetown. In gifting appreciated stock, bonds, or mutual fund shares that you have owned for at least one year, you may enjoy one or a combination of the following benefits:
- Avoid paying capital gains tax on the appreciation
- Receive a charitable tax deduction
- Provide support for a Georgetown school or program that is meaningful to you
To ensure proper and timely credit for your gift of stock or mutual funds, please notify the Office of Planned Giving prior to transfer by phone at (800) 347-8067, by email at email@example.com, or through our fillable stock gift form. If you prefer to fax the document to the office, you can do so at (202) 687-4902.
Georgetown is not able to accept all mutual funds, so it is important to contact us prior to transferring to confirm our broker can accept your specific fund.
Please provide your account manager with the following information to facilitate the transfer:
|Account Name||Georgetown University|
|Broker Information||UBS Financial Services / the Finnerty Group|
