Marketable Securities: Stocks and Bonds

You benefit with

  • A charitable tax deduction for the fair market value of a security held longer than one year.
  • A bypass of capital gains taxes and penalties.

We are happy to assist you and your financial advisers in determining which marketable securities options are best
suited to your individual goals. Please contact the Development office.


Real Estate

Real estate includes residential homes, commercial buildings, farmland, vacation homes and land.
Gifts of real estate can be very helpful to the AAC while providing donors with substantial benefits, as well.
Even if the value of the property is more than a donor wishes to give (or deduct) in any given year, a portion
of it may still be used to make a gift. Please note that each potential gift of real estate must be reviewed before it can be accepted.

You benefit with

  • Current income tax savings,
  • A charitable tax deduction
  • A bypass of capital gains taxes and penalties.
