Securities

To make a gift of appreciated securities that have been held for at least one year, inform your broker or bank and request that they contact the Greenville Tech Foundation at (864) 250-8497 to learn how the securities can be transferred to the Foundation. This gift may entitle the donor to an immediate income tax deduction for the current fair market value, as well as provide savings in capital gains tax. The value is based on the median price using the high and low prices of the security on the day it was transferred to the Foundation.

For tax reasons, it is generally not advisable to sell appreciated securities and then donate the proceeds to the Foundation. It's generally best to donate the appreciated securities instead. We recommend you contact your tax advisor for the latest information that is specific to your personal situation. 

Real Estate, Personal Property and Equipment

Gifts of real estate, personal property, equipment, office furniture, computers, and other in-kind items are counted at fair market value. Gifts valued at $5,000 or more require a qualified third-party appraiser, subject to applicable IRS rules and regulations. Appreciated assets must be held for at least one year before being donated to a charity if the donor intends to claim the appreciated value as a gift. We recommend you contact your tax advisor for the latest information that is specific to your personal situation. 

Matching Gifts

Corporate matching gifts count toward your contribution and may significantly increase the value of your total gift. Check with your company to determine if a gift from you or your spouse is eligible for a Matching Gift. If you are eligible, enclose the company matching gift form with your donation.
