Gifts of appreciated securities may generate very favorable tax benefits for the donor. To make a gift of securities, contact Kerry Stokes, Securities Administrator, at kstokes@wellesley.edu or 781.283.3349. Also, please share Wellesley's securities transfer instructions with your broker to assure a timely and accurate transfer.

Electronic Funds Transfer

An electronic funds transfer ("EFT") is a convenient, cost-effective way to support Wellesley. With EFT, your annual contribution is divided into monthly installments, which are automatically deducted from your checking or savings account. For more information, please contact Kerry Stokes, Senior Coordinator for Gifts Administration, at kstokes@wellesley.edu or 781.283.3349.

Personal Property and Real Estate

Gifts-in-kind are non-cash contributions of materials or long-lived assets that serve the purposes of the College by providing tangible property that can be put to use or can be sold to provide funding for College priorities. Donors may benefit from an immediate income tax deduction for the appraised value of the gift and pay no capital gains tax, so long as the gift can be used by the College to carry out its mission. Consultation with a staff member will help you determine the appropriateness of a gift-in-kind.

The College applies special policies and conditions to the acceptance of gifts and tangible property. The 1996 Wellesley College Policy on Gifts of Tangible Property describes these policies in detail, including procedures and regulations specific to the Davis Museum and the Wellesley College Library, as well as to gifts of real estate.

 


 

Match Your Gift 

Many corporate employers, parent companies, and some foundations will match the individual charitable gifts of their employees, retirees, the spouses of their employees and, in some cases, board members. Taking advantage of your company's matching gift program is a wonderful way to increase the impact of your gift to Wellesley; the impact of your gift may be doubled or possibly tripled! All matching gifts are counted toward your membership in the Durant Society.

To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, enter your employer's name below or check with your human resources department.
