Donations of Appreciated Securities (Stocks)
Using securities that have gone up in value since you bought them is an excellent way to make a gift to WKSU. In most cases you will be entitled to an income tax charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the securities on the date of the gift and will not have to report capital gain income. You may use securities to make your annual gift to WKSU, contribute a special gift, or to fund a charitable gift annuity or charitable trust.
Stock gifts to WKSU are transferred through the Kent State Foundation. When transferring stock, please indicate that the contribution is for WKSU. And, notify Natalie Pillsbury at firstname.lastname@example.org that you are making a stock contribution. Please also reach out to Natalie if you have questions or need assistance.
