Gifts of Stocks or Securities
Gifts of appreciated shares of marketable securities are a valuable contribution to the University of Houston. What's more, these gifts may provide significant tax advantages to you, because you can deduct the fair market value of publicly traded securities without paying capital gains tax on the sale of the gifted stock.
The University of Houston maintains active trading accounts, so it's easy to transfer securities to the university. For details on making a transfer, please contact Anne Montgomery at (713) 743-8782.
