Stocks and Securities Gifts

Making a stock gift is an easy and tax-smart way to invest in Pacific University. A gift of appreciated securities saves taxes twice. You may receive an income tax deduction for the full market value of the donated shares if you have held the securities for more than one year, and you may avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation.
