Gifts of Stock or Bonds

Many donors to the University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry make outright gifts and pledges in the form of appreciated securities rather than cash, providing an extra tax advantage.

If you itemize your tax return, you are entitled to a charitable income-tax deduction for the full value of your gift, provided you have owned the securities for more than 12 months.

You avoid paying a tax on capital gains that you would owe if you sold the securities. Gifts of securities are deductible for federal tax purposes up to a limit of 30% of your adjusted gross income.

To make a gift of stock or securities, transfer them to University of the Pacific, Arthur A. School of Dentistry (Tax ID# 94-1156266):
