Gifts of appreciated securities and closely held stock can be extremely beneficial - both to you and to Franklin Pierce. You may receive an income-tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the securities, as well as reduce or eliminate capital gains taxes.
Franklin Pierce policy states that the stock will be sold immediately unless otherwise specified by the donor. Marketable securities held in a donor's brokerage or trust account may be transferred to Franklin Pierce University using the following process.
Please instruct your broker, trust officer, or financial adviser to electronically deliver the securities by DTC to:
