Did you know you can make your annual giving donation by gifts of stock or appreciated securities? It’s true. And with capital gains tax eliminated on gifts of marketable securities, this is an even more attractive way to make a charitable contribution. Donors may transfer appreciated stocks, mutual funds or flow-through shares directly to a charity such as UCC and avoid paying tax on the accumulated capital gains.

A donation receipt will be issued for the fair market value of the securities. Please

Thank you to everyone who has participated in this year’s annual giving campaign. Your participation is what counts and your gift makes a difference.
