How to Give

Not only do you have options for how your gift will be used, you also have options on what to give and how to give. There are gifts that cost you nothing now, gifts that pay you income, and gifts that allow you to decide what happens when.

Gifts of Stock

One of the biggest tax advantages in charitable giving continues to be the double benefit donors get when donating appreciated assets to Union College instead of cash. By giving appreciated assets (like stocks held for more than one year), you'll get a charitable tax deduction for the full value of the asset and avoid any capital gains tax that would have applied if you had sold the stock and made your gift in cash.

To receive instructions on how to make an electronic stock transfer or a gift of stock in certificate form, please contact Michelle Fluger Reynolds at (518) 388-6156, or via email at reynolm2@union.edu.
