Gifts of Securities

Drexel University Tax ID (EIN): 23‐1352630

You can make your mark on the future and empower Drexel University to reach its potential by donating a gift of your appreciated securities.

If you’ve owned a publicly traded stock for more than a year, you can donate it to Drexel University, which is a registered nonprofit organization. In so doing, you will benefit from two major tax breaks:

  • an exemption from paying capital gains on its appreciated value; and
  • a deduction on your federal income tax based on the security’s current fair market value, no matter what you originally paid for it.

When you make a gift of securities, Drexel sells your stock and uses the proceeds to support the area or program you designate. You can make a gift of securities that benefits the University immediately, or a delayed gift that benefits Drexel in the future and generates revenue for you now.
