An Example of How It Works
When Sarah's father passed away, she knew she wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for him. She remembered that during his lifetime he was always praising U-M for the impact the university had on his life.
Sarah decided to make a gift to U-M in her father's name using appreciated securities. Not only will her father's legacy live on at U-M thanks to the gift, but Sarah also received a federal income tax charitable deduction (because she itemizes her taxes) and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
