Gifts of Securities & Mutual Funds

Making a gift of securities is both simple and tax efficient because you receive a double tax benefit. With a gift of appreciated securities, you are entitled to a federal income tax charitable deduction if you itemize your return. For appreciated securities held longer than one year, you may deduct the full fair market value of your gift. A second tax benefit with a gift of appreciated securities is that you avoid any capital gains tax.

To make a gift of stocks, bonds, or mutual funds, please call the Harvard Management Company toll-free at (866) 845-6596.

Planned Gifts

To inquire about planned gifts, please contact Judi Cantor, Director of Planned Giving, at (617) 432-8071 or visit our website.
