Transfer Stock to Florida Tech
One of the most advantageous ways to contribute to the university is through a gift of stock. Making a gift of securities is simple and offers a number of benefits:
- You can donate appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds
- The total value of the stock upon transfer is tax-deductible
- There is no obligation to pay any capital gains taxes on the appreciation
The university recommends that you consult with your tax advisor regarding your specific tax situation.
