Maximizing Impact: Ways to Make Your Most Generous Gift
Ashley Sonntag '19 is one of the thousands of students who benefit from endowed funds established by generous donors. In fact, the Gettysburg Fund benefits every student, every day.
When you consider your next gift to Gettysburg, we encourage you to think beyond your checkbook. Gifts of assets can help you reduce taxes while making a more generous gift than you may have thought possible.
For example, did you know that you can donate shares of stock or other securities, held for one year or more, and eliminate capital gains tax that would be due if you sold them? This can be a great strategy for making your next gift to the Gettysburg Fund, and can be almost as simple as writing a check.
Our team is here to help you consider all your options. To learn more about ways to support Gettysburg College based on what inspires you, what assets you hold, and your unique situation, contact The Office of Planned Giving at firstname.lastname@example.org or 717.337.6489 to begin a conversation.
