Save taxes by making gifts of appreciated stock.

Your gift of securities helps you support Marist's mission and possibly provide a significant tax savings at the same time. You receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift and avoid paying any capital gains tax on the increase in value of the stock...Something to consider.

Many corporations support higher education through employee matching gift programs.

Many corporations sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made to higher education by their employees. Matching gift programs provide employees the opportunity to double, triple or quadruple the value of their gift to the college. Find out if your employer has a matching gift policy. If your employer does match gifts to higher education, please contact your Human Resource department for information or the necessary matching gift form.

Endowments help ensure Marist's viability.

An endowment is a gift made with the request that the initial gift remain intact and that only the interest is used during any year. This ensures that the original intent of the gift continues in perpetuity. Many times, endowments are established to accomplish a purpose designated by the donor. Endowment funds also provide institutions with the sense of security against potential financial difficulties.

Planned giving ensures Marist's stability for the future.

A planned gift made through a will or trust to Marist is a gift that can help ensure the long term financial stability of Marist while providing you with the opportunity to become part of Marist's future. We would like to help you consider this kind of gift while planning for your financial future. All gifts are administered in strict compliance with the wishes of the donor. Please consult your tax advisor when considering this kind of gift.
