How You Can Support Salisbury University: Special Gifts
There are a variety of ways in which a Special
Gift can be made to Salisbury University. Every dollar you give outright
to support SU is tax deductible.
Gifts of Cash
- Cash gifts are the most common form of giving. Cash gifts have many
advantages, one of which is that they are immediately available to
assist in our programs.
Gifts of Appreciated Securities - If you
have marketable securities that have grown substantially in value, the
tax laws make it possible for you to make an important gift at a
remarkably low after-tax cost. Not only will a gift of this nature allow
you the income tax deduction associated with a charitable gift to SU,
but it will also avoid the long term capital gains tax on your paper
profit. These double tax savings for you result in an economic gift that
Gifts of Real Estate
- The tax benefits for gifts of appreciated real estate are virtually
identical to those for gifts of appreciated securities. Gifts of
appreciated real property such as undeveloped land, farms or personal
residences may be transferred by deed with no liability for income or
estate taxes on the appreciation.
Gifts of Personal Property - Antiques,
paintings, boats and other effects can be valuable assets for giving.
Some restrictions apply to gifts of this nature, but those accepted do
offer similar tax benefits as real estate and securities.
- You can name Salisbury University as the beneficiary of a life
insurance policy. This provides a yearly tax deduction to you for the
premiums paid on the policy.
