Gifts of Stocks, Bonds and Real Estate

How it Works

Make an immediate gift by directly transferring stocks, bonds or other securities to the University of Michigan. If you transfer appreciated assets, you will likely avoid capital gains tax.

Real estate can be given outright, through an estate or to fund some life income gifts such as the charitable remainder unitrust. You receive a current income tax charitable deduction for a portion of the property’s value.
