Designate a gift in memory or in honor of someone special

Include a gift or bequest in your estate planning

Give a gift of appreciated securities

One way to make a donation to the Albright-Knox's Annual Giving Campaign is through appreciated securities. Securities with a low-cost basis are tax efficient assets to the museum.

 

Advantages

  • A charitable income-tax deduction is allowed for the full market value of the securities when they are given.
  • Since there is no sale, no capital gains tax is due on the increase over your cost. Many of our donors use securities to make larger gifts because of this tax savings.

 

How do I make a gift of stock?

  • Transfer securities directly to the Albright-Knox Art Gallery’s broker.
  • Mail or deliver a stock certificate to the museum with a stock power.
